The best universities know the importance of having as many talents, from as many walks of life as possible, in their campus. A more diverse student cohort enriches discussions and debates. They ensure the institution’s intellectual impact reflects the demographics of the world, not just one section of them. With the best and brightest in their roll call, these universities can compete better in world rankings too.
Durham University is that kind of higher education institution. The World Top 100 University (QS World University Rankings 2022) understands that there are enough barriers in life — higher education should not be one of them. No one should be hindered from pursuing knowledge because they did not win the lottery of life by being born in certain countries or socioeconomic class.
Durham University’s International Scholarships 2022 plays this critical role in expanding the finest of a British education to all. Students from Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan and Vietnam, looking to start their undergraduate or taught postgraduate studies in 2022, are welcome to apply.
To apply, you need to complete the appropriate programme application process in full, hold a conditional offer, and accept the offer by deadlines specified. You do not need to apply for the scholarship separately. Once you have an offer of a place, you’ll be automatically considered for a scholarship.
The scholarship will consist of a 5,000 pounds per year tuition fee discount — which will go a long way in supporting any student. Scholarship recipients can focus on their studies and careers, instead of thinking about how to pay for living costs or to repay loans. You’ll have more time for clubs, community service, and internships, maximising the university experience. You’ll have a higher chance of graduating and getting the degree you want.
This then snowballs to even more advantages, such as the ability to consider going into fields that require postgraduate training — such as law or medicine — or the privilege to pursue careers on the basis of your passion, not just salaries. Employers also favour scholarship recipients over those without, as they are a testament of your value and accomplishments. In short, the International Scholarships will make your education and career goals easier to obtain.
Having a Durham University degree enhances your career prospects even more. The third oldest university in England is well-known for its academic excellence. Durham University ranks among the World’s Top 100, according to QS World University Rankings 2022. As many as 16 Durham subjects are in the World Top 100 of the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2022. The university excels in a number of other rankings too, cementing its reputation as one of the best in the world.
Pair this reputation and culture for great teaching and research with a dynamic location, and students have all they need to be extraordinary. This outstanding student experience begins at Durham’s colleges. Every Durham student is a member of a college, each of which is more than just a collection of excellent facilities for academic study, socialising, sport/fitness, music, drama and arts performance.
They are the homes for an international, multidisciplinary, and scholarly community. People are friendly. Debates, formal and informal, are inspiring. Support is comprehensive, helping students settle into university life and providing the first point of contact for issues if they arise, with referral to more specialist help as needed.
The city is just as dynamic. Many of the city’s attractions are free for students — look out for special deals at Durham Castle, Cathedral, the Botanic Garden, and Oriental Museum. It’s very easy to hop from one place to another — around the city and campus — with affordable student bus tickets that only cost one pound a day.
“Mixing with the city’s rich culture and history is a vibrant community of students and staff members studying and researching some of the most cutting-edge of research areas,” shares Peter Liu from China, studying MMath Mathematics, Trevelyan College. “I really enjoy studying at Durham University.”
