University College London (UCL) and the Africa Educational Trust (AET)
Here is a full undergraduate scholarship to study in the UK. It is specifically designed for students from Africa. The competition will be high but if you have excellent grades then it is worth it to apply. I have listed specific instructions below – but to summarize you must apply first to the school, then to the scholarship. Best Wishes and Keep me posted on your scholarship search progress. Samuel
- UCL-AET have agreed to collaborate in a scheme to enable students from Africa, who are financially unable to study in the UK, to pursue full-time undergraduate studies at UCL. With this scheme UCL supports the aims of AET to help the people of Africa to help themselves.
- Under the scheme, two full bursaries are available annually for AET-nominated students who have accepted offers of places at UCL.
- is among the world’s top universities, as reflected in performance in a range of rankings and tables. 21 Nobel prizewinners have come from the UCL community.
- We have a global reach and global vision. Almost two-thirds of our student body come from outside the UK, attracted from nearly 140 countries around the globe.
- Much of the energy of UCL life comes from our students. We provide opportunity and leadership in teaching and research, entrepreneurship, volunteering and overseas study. We admit only excellent students and work with them to develop and excel.
- UCL was founded in 1826 as a radically different university, opening up English higher education for the first time to people of all beliefs and social backgrounds.
