Sheffield Hallam University (SHU), one of the U.K.’s largest universities, has announced a package of scholarships, discounts and bursaries for Indian students applying for a wide-range of courses under the ‘Transform Together Scholarships’ programme for its September 2013 intake.
The scholarship consists of a one-year tuition fee waiver for full-time postgraduate courses and a 50 per cent fee discount for each year of an undergraduate course.
The last date for applying is June 30. For September 2013, the university is also offering four scholarships in the prestigious Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme, which covers tuition fees, living and travel costs for a Master’s course.
Automatic bursaries and discounts of up to Rs. 80,000 are applied to course fees in subject areas including business and management, accounting and finance, bio sciences, physiotherapy and architecture.
High-achieving students can apply for up to Rs. 4,00,000 towards fees for courses in many subject areas, including engineering, media and communications, art and design and M.Sc. in Big Data Analytics — a new course for this year.
Sudha Toppo, regional co-ordinator for South Asia, SHU, said, “We have put together what we believe to be a generous package of scholarships, bursaries and discounts for Indian applicants for courses starting in September 2013.” The SHU, established in 1843, is one of the most progressive universities in the U.K. The university, known for its academic excellence and value-based education, is currently offering more than 750 courses to 35,000 students, including 4,250 international students from 120 countries. Last year, the number of Indian students was more than 400.
