Think Big international scholarships

Our international scholarships could help you fund your UK study at the University of Bristol. We've invested up to £3 million in Think Big scholarships to help international students come to Bristol in 2024.

These scholarships are for applicants with overseas fee status who have applied for an eligible undergraduate or master's course.

Multiple scholarships, one application

Our Think Big scheme has partnered with faculties, alumni and external partners to offer a wide range of scholarships.

To make the application process easier, you only need to submit one scholarship application. With one application we consider you for every scholarship, providing that you meet the necessary entry requirements.

Think Big Development Programme‌‌

If you're awarded a scholarship, you not only receive financial support, you'll gain access to the Think Big Development Programme.

The programme offers guidance, support, inspiration, and a solid framework for you to unlock your potential beyond your academic studies.

International scholarships community on LinkedIn

Join us on LinkedIn and network with current and past scholars. 

Be honest, enthusiastic and passionate in your application. Talk candidly about your reasons for applying, whether it is a fascination with the city, career aspirations, or a desire to be a part of something bigger.
