EU Applications

The UK has left the European Union and is now in a period of transition until 31 December 2020. If you are a resident in the UK before 31 December 2020, you will be eligible to apply for a visa under the 'EU Settlement Scheme'.

An overview of the EU Settlement Scheme can be found on the GOV website, as well as GOV guidance on travelling to the UK.

If you are coming to the UK after 31 December 2020 and are not previously a UK resident, then you will be subject to the new Point Based Immigration System. From 5 October 2020, you can request a CAS to apply for a visa under the new Student Route. More information can be found on GOV New Point Based System for EU nationals.

Detailed application guide for the 'EU Settlement Scheme' and FAQs for students at Warwick can be found here.

Overseas Applications

Overseas students can apply for one of the grants available from the British Council or from the International Office at Warwick.

Also see Warwick Postgraduate Research Fellowship and the European Scholarship Database.

Funding may also be available through International Government schemes, and through the Ministry of Education. For most of the scholarships one would have to apply at least 6 months in advance. This means you might have to fund yourself at least for the first year.
