Learning comes in all shapes and sizes. The scholarships below provide opportunities for learning beyond the traditional undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
Santander Travel Grants
These travel grants, generously funded by our partner Santander Universities, are to help fund research related activities overseas. Open to undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students, funds may be applied for to support field work activities and research dissemination (ie. presenting at conferences or attending workships etc).
Short Course Scholarships
We are working to grow the number of short course scholarships to assist foreign students. We provide the Nutrition in Emergencies Scholarship, which is for students from developing countries that wish to study on the Nutrition in Emergency short course at the University of Westminster, which will run in July 2017. Please see below for further details.
The Distant Horizon Awards
The Distant Horizon Awards are international travel awards for our undergraduate students who wish to take part in academic or career-related events or activities overseas but who may not have the financial capability to do so. Experience abroad promotes learning beyond traditional undergraduate courses, allowing you to gain perspective on other cultures, travel to exciting destinations, and enhance your career perspectives. Now is the time to go global!
Please note that the award cannot be used for everyday travel (i.e. Oyster travel cards), or travel that has already occurred. Though ERASMUS students are eligible to apply, these applicants must provide supporting evidence that their ERASMUS grant does not cover this type of academic event referenced in the application.
The award covers travel costs, such as international transportation (e.g. flights, trains), accommodation and related participation fees (e.g. conference fees, registration fees). The award would not cover equipment or daily subsistence.
