Scholarships managed by the British Council

Every year the British Council in India sends approximately 600 Indian students and professionals to the UK under various scholarships, training and exchanges programs. Candidates should be Indian nationals, currently resident in India. They must undertake to return to India at the end of their award. For academic scholarships, one needs to have a confirmed offer of admission from a UK university. Scholarships normally cover full fees and living expenses but do not cover cost of international travel.
