UK Universities are often government-funded universities. This means that the university receives limited funds to distribute among students as scholarships and bursaries. However, many universities offer certain awards for the students based on their merits and performance during the course period.
In addition, some of the UK universities also offer special awards for the Indian students. Not just this, the additional source of the scholarship is the British Government sponsored awards such as DFID scholarship, Chevening Scholarship, and Commonwealth Scholarship. These are highly competitive scholarships and the deadlines to apply for these scholarships are given much in advance of the session.
Royal UK Education informs their candidates about the university courses which offer scholarship programs. Also, we find out and suggest different scholarship opportunities based on your academic interests and financial level.
It is very important for students to pay attention to each and every step on the application process for admission. Please check the following procedure for the application.

The candidates are mandatory to go for the English Language requirements: IELTS and have to score a minimum of 6.5 for the postgraduates and 6.0 for the undergraduate studies. Some UK universities allow students to apply and waive off the English requirement if the student has scored up to 75 percent in English in XII.
TOEFL and PTE are accepted only by selected UK universities.
Most of the top UK universities require 80-85 percentage for admission for Engineering, Management, and Law courses. Some high-ranking universities even require a minimum of 90 percent for specific subjects to comply with eligibility. The IB: 38-40 points and A levels – AAA is preferred.
