        • Study London says:

          Hello, the majority of scholarships are based on academic achievements. I don’t know where you are from but if 83% is a high grade in your country, then you have a chance of being successful. You will first need to apply for an academic course before applying for a scholarship.

  4. Sonia Sanchez says:

    hello , I’m from Morocco , and I want to know what are to universities in London that will surely accept me for september 2015 ( because I think that universities like UCL and imperial collge are very selective … )

    • Study London says:

      Hi Sonia, there is no guaranteed acceptance at any of the universities. You are right, UCL and Imperial are amongst the most selective universities but all universities will need to look at your application and qualifications to make a decision as to whether to accept you.

  5. Tapiwa Chipunga says:

  7. Alex Chuma says:

    Can I apply scholarship even if I am not applying for the admission yet?

    • Study London says:

      Hi Alex, all the scholarships we have seen so far for next year require that you submit an academic application first. This way the university can see that you are a suitable candidate for the course before they consider you for the scholarship. You can apply for a course even if you have not completed your current studies yet, as long as you are due to complete your studies before the start of the university course.

    can i apply for a full scholarship for a student taking his high school examination in june 2015?

    • Study London says:

      Hi Cyndy. You can apply to a university even before you finish your high school, as long as you will receive your final results before the start of the university course. Therefore, if you finish school in June 2015, you can apply for a course at a university now. If the university wants to accept you, they will give you a conditional offer, based on the condition that you have to meet the entry requirements with your final results in June. Once you have applied to an academic course, you can apply for the scholarships offered by the university.

    Hi is A Polytechnic Diploma equivalent
    to a Higher National Diploma HND (post A level )
    in the UK ?

    • Study London says:

      Hi Rajib, generally polytechnic diplomas are regarded similarly to HNDs and are accepted by universities for entry into Year 1 or 2 of a Bachelor degree (this depends the institution you graduated from, your grades and the policies of the university in the UK). If you would like to get an official Statement of Comparibility, you can do this by contacting UK NARIC. However, most universities are familiar with a wide variety of qualifications from around the world. If you have specific questions, you could contact the universities you are interested in directly.
