Degrees Ahead University Abroad Funding Options

University Abroad Funding Options

The most inhibiting factor to UK students wanting to study abroad is funding.  Its shocking that the option for UK students to study in Denmark for no fees or the Netherlands for low fees is out of reach because there is no funding available for living costs...join our campaign to make UK student loans portable.

There are several funding options for students looking at studying at a University overseas:

Funding for Study in Australia

Students wanting to study in Australia need to be preared to self fund their studies, as currently there are no loans available.  

There are scholarships available from individual universiites so you will need to look at the scholarships offered by the university that you are interested in.  There are more opportunites for post-graduate study especially research.  

Endeavour Awards

The Endeavour Awards offer a postgraduate award and an award for Vocational and Educational training (VET) this is for a certificate, Diploma or associate degree for up to 2.5 years.

Northcote Graduate Scholarship

Applications are invited from students normally resident in the United Kingdom who wish to undertake a higher degree at an Australian university for a period of up to three years.

Applicants must show their eligibility for an Australian graduate programme - this can be done through already putting in an application through Degrees Ahead to your University of Choice. There are no limitations as the field of study.

The scholarship will provide:ยท

  • an economy class return airfare to Australia
  • payments of compulsory fees at an Australian university
  • an allowance of A$23,500 per annum.

UK students have also been successful in applying for the Career Development Loan for post-graduate courses in Australia.  

Funding for Study in Europe

The Netherlands

UK Students are able to get a loan for university fees in the Netherlands from the Dutch government

Dutch Government EU Student Loans.

Students are also entitled to a non-repayable study grant if they are working a minimum 32 hours a month. The grant is currently Euro 266 a month.  However if students earn over Euro 13,000 a year they may have to pay it back.


UK citizens are not entitled to any funding from the Danish government.  UK Students can apply for ERAMUS funding if they choose to study abroad as part of their degree in Denmark or undertake an internship in another European country.
