Meet GREAT scholar, Ravichandran

Ravichandran joined us from India to study MSc Advanced Design and Manufacturing after successfully securing £10,000 off his tuition through the GREAT Britain campaign.

“I was looking at Scholarship options and saw that University of Northampton along with the British Council were offering a scholarship for my chosen course. I already had an offer with the university so was able to make an application on the website.

My tip for other students applying would be that in the application, don’t just focus on your previous academics, focus on what makes you stand out and how the course relates to your career aspirations. If there is a regional office in your country of application, speak to them as they can help guide you too.”

  • We are delighted to offer 3 GREAT Scholarships, each to the value of £10,000 (including a contribution of £5,000 from the British Council); one each for students from Brunei, Sri Lanka and Turkey.

    These scholarships are open only to applicants from Brunei, Sri Lanka and Turkey, holding an offer in the following subject areas:
