SCHOLARSHIP & VISA APPLICATIONS


SCHOLARSHIPS

De Montfort University, Leicester:- We offer a first come first served basis of a £1500 scholarship with an additional £500 early payment discount totaling £2000. When candidates send applications to us, we ask to request confirmation that there is still availability (as you can imagine, these opportunities get taken up very quickly from our International students); We will then confirm to you if the scholarship has been granted; based on the student paying a £3000 deposit by an agreed date.

If the scholarship is granted to the student, the student will receive an updated fees letter deducting the amount granted.
