UK Scholarships for Indian Students | GyanDhan

The standard of education in the UK has always been top-notch. So it is no coincidence that 11 UK universities feature in the top 100 universities, according to the World University Rankings 2020. The rich culture, quality education, and strong research infrastructure of the universities are just some of the reasons for international students to choose the UK for their higher education. Last year’s data report suggests that there were 460,000 international students studying in the UK.

Hi @Sagar_Desai,

Please refer to these links for scholarships -

You can also find scholarships on the university website. For example, UCL Chemical Engineering Department offers bursaries to postgraduate students. Refer to this link -
Bursaries and Funding | UCL Department of Chemical Engineering - UCL – University College London
Similarly, you can find it for the Univerity of Manchester as well.
You can also contact the department for more relevant scholarships based on merit or need for international students.

According to the Graduate Employability Ranking 2020, the University of Manchester will prepare you better for a job, thereby increasing your chances of employment. Though, UCL is not far behind. The University of Manchester also ranks higher than UCL for your chosen course. However, remember that UCL is in London with more options for employment. I’d recommend going through the curriculum of both the universities and check whether they correspond with your career goals or not. The subjects should help you get the desired job. Both universities are top-ranked. So, it is more about which serves your purpose better.

Hope this helps. Do post on the thread for any further queries or doubts.
All the best!
