Today, Scotland has a world-renowned education system, top-notch universities and a reputation for nurturing creative thinkers.



Current scholarships for Ukrainians


If you are planning to study in Scotland and are looking for additional financial assistance, you should know that there is a wide range of scholarships available to suit all study options https://study-uk.britishcouncil.org/. In addition, there are two national programs run by the UK and Scottish governments: Chevening and Saltire Scholarships https://www.scotland.org/study/scholarships


On April 14, 2022, the Scottish Government announced free tuition and living costs support of up to £8100 per year in the form of scholarships and loans for students from Ukraine starting their studies in 2022-2023. https://www.studentinformation.gov.scot/students/higher-education/support-for-ukrainian-students


Some universities offer support programs for Ukrainian students. https://www.ed.ac.uk/university-of-sanctuary/ukraine


1. The University of Glasgow was ranked first among Scottish universities in 2022. The results of the study show that the university ranks 1st in the UK in three disciplines: sports, the food industry, and dentistry.

IDP students from Ukraine living in Scotland will receive support for accommodation and the right to free tuition. To do this, you need to apply for participation in the program in the organization Homes for Ukraine, Ukraine Family, and Ukraine Extension.


The University of Glasgow offers 20 scholarships for applicants who are in the UK. The scholarship is open to prospective students for the academic year 2023/2024. Under this program, the scholarship provides a payment of £5000 towards tuition fees.


Applicants must

  • have confirmation of admission to the University of Glasgow for the academic year 2023/2024

  • apply (have applied) for refugee status

  • have leave to remain in the UK under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights or under paragraphs 276ADE to 276DH of the UK Immigration Rules.


Terms of payment


Ukrainians, as international students, will have to pay for their studies at both undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Tuition fees depend on the university you want to study at and the course you want to study. Degrees in the humanities and social sciences tend to cost the least, while degrees involving laboratory or clinical work are more expensive.

Admission conditions for Ukrainians


All universities in Scotland are public universities and are funded by the Scottish Government. Applying for an undergraduate degree in the UK is very easy. You don't need to contact a large number of universities - you can apply for up to five courses at once through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Center also known as UCAS https: //www.ucas.com/ for a small administration fee and UCAS handles to everyone else.


Here's how it works:

First, go to the UCAS website https://www.ucas.com/ where you can complete the application form. Then write a personal statement. This is your chance to stand out from the crowd by explaining why you are interested in the course, what skills you have that make you a good fit, and your life experiences and achievements. You may also need a written recommendation from someone who can confirm your ability to complete the course, such as a tutor or one of your school teachers.


It is important to know.

Universities in Great Britain use so-called "clearing" systems, specially designed to match vacancies at universities to applicants who are suitable for them.

What is clearing? Clearing is a system used by UCAS and UK universities at the end of the academic year to fill places on courses that have not been taken.


How does clearing work? Any courses on which places are still available are listed on the UCAS website. Once you've found what suits you, you'll need to apply to see if you've been offered a place at a university or college. After registering, you can informally call universities, but to officially submit an application, you will need an account number in the Clearing system. (You can only apply for one place at a time.)


You will be eligible for clearing if:

  • You have not received any offers

  • You have not accepted any of the offers you have received

  • You did not respond in time to your offers

  • You apply after June 30

  • Your ratings are too low for your offers

From 5 July to 19 October of the year, you can apply for a course through Clearing if you do not yet have an offer from a university or college and there are still places on the course. Once the cleanup starts, you can start searching for courses using the online search. Once you have found the course you want, you should call the university directly to check that they still have places available and to double check that you meet the entry requirements. If they offer you a place and you want to accept it, just follow the online process on the UCAS website.


What certificate is required


Qualifications (documents proving the level of knowledge) required for courses are often listed as UK qualifications. If your qualifications are not listed in the entry requirements, check the university's website or contact it. Many universities accept alternative equivalent qualifications. You can get a report comparing your qualifications with UK equivalents from UK ENIC (UK National Information Centre). https://enic.org.uk/Qualifications/SOC/Default.aspx


Types of visas, visa issues


Citizens of Ukraine need a visa to study in Scotland. The UK Government manages visas and immigration in Scotland. Up-to-date information on visa requirements and information on how to apply for a visa. https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/uk-visas-and-immigration
