Up to £3000 is available through the UWTSD Wales Global Academy for international alumni of the University to study a postgraduate programme.  In addition, the University will celebrate its bicentenary in 2022 marking the establishment of St David’s College, Lampeter in 1822 as the birthplace of higher education in Wales. As part of those celebrations, we are offering a Bicentenary Scholarship of up to £3000 to international students who commence their degree or master’s level programme in 2021.

A UWTSD Scholarship of up to £3000 is also available for students from commonwealth countries as well as an International Doctoral College Scholarship of up to £5000 for successful international candidates accepted onto a doctoral level research programme.

The Global Wales Postgraduate Scholarship is offered to students from Vietnam, India, the USA and countries of the European Union to study in Wales. The scholarships - each worth £10,000 – are for international students to study a full-time master’s programme in Wales.

This prestigious scheme is the first scholarship of its kind in Wales and is funded by the Global Wales Programme, a partnership between the Welsh Government, Universities Wales, The British Council and the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW).  As part of the scheme UWTSD can offer a minimum of three £10,000 scholarships to students who have already applied for a place to study an eligible postgraduate programme before they submit your scholarship application.
