Funding in UK

The United Kingdom (UK) is among the most popular destinations for international students attaining education. Students' aspirations align with the royal culture and the possibility of career growth in one of the world's most powerful economic countries.

However, students frequently struggle to meet their educational objectives in the UK due to a lack of knowledge and proper guidance regarding financial aid. Our knowledgeable counselors at PFEC Global will help you become aware of the numerous funding opportunities available in the form of scholarships, bursaries, and grants.

Basic eligibility requirements to apply for Financial Aid

We understand that the procedures can be how overwhelming the process can be when you have not done them before. Thus, we ensure the basic knowledge is provided to you and enable progress to the path of success together.


Check the respective website for your preferred institution’s official announcements outlining eligibility, criteria, timelines, and deadlines. Moreover, often these scholarships will expect you to have a strong academic record. Thus, aspects such as extracurricular activities and volunteering will enhance the possibility to give you an advantage over your prospective competitors. In essence, based on the scholarship you are applying for, there may be other factors that will help determine your fate.


The amount of financial aid provided to students is frequently determined by institution-specific scholarships and the availability of funds based on the type of award. As a consequence of PFEC Global’s experience in the field, we are able to provide consultation on the idea of applying for financial aid 8-12 months before applying for courses. Thus, allowing you to have enough time to process your funding application.
