The United Kingdom’s “University of Sheffield” is going to provide 125 scholarships to international postgraduates in 2024. The scholarship would fill up the tuition fees of students for a program for post-graduates starting in 2024 by awarding cash of £5,000. International students can also join this scholarship if they fulfil the criteria of the program.
Candidates are required to have gained an offer for a complete term of education at the University of Sheffield, with the program launching in the fall of 2024. However, master’s programs shared by the University and other schools are not acceptable for these scholarships. In addition, students searching for distance learning, Erasmus Mundus courses, or cross-platform courses are disqualified for merit awards. Applicants are also required to be independently funded and take responsibility for paying the worldwide tuition charge, rather than having it paid for by other organisations.
Therefore, some crucial dates need to be remembered:

- Scholarship applications must be completed by 1 p.m. (UK Time) which is on Monday, May 13, 2024.
