University of Essex launches GREAT Scholarships 2023-24 for Indian students

UK based University of Essex today announced its GREAT Scholarships for Indian students. These scholarships worth GBP 10,000 are aimed at master’s students with strong academic backgrounds who have work experience or have demonstrated interest in their chosen subject area. The funding must be used towards the cost of tuition fees for any one-year taught Masters (MA, MSc or LLM).

Scholars will be expected to engage fully with extra-curricular activities alongside their lectures and tutorials. It is hoped they will also be a spokesperson for their subject area and contribute to future capacity building – particularly around socioeconomic advancement and meeting the challenges of climate change.

Head of Operations (Regional International Office network) at the University of Essex, Sandeep Sharma, said: “The Great Scholarships offer talented Indian students wonderful opportunities to study at a leading UK university, to be an ambassador for higher education and become a leader in their chosen field.”

These scholarships are open to anyone with a valid Indian passport, who is classified as an overseas student, is fully self-funded and holds an offer (conditional or unconditional) to start a one-year full time master’s degree in the relevant subject in October 2023.

Scholarship awards are limited to one per student and cannot be combined with other University of Essex awards.

Some students may not be eligible for these scholarships regardless of whether they meet the above criteria. Students enrolling at East 15 Acting School, sponsored in whole or in part, deferred admissions, and students who are not classified as paying overseas fees, are some of the cases.

To get assistance on the application process or any further information on any of the processes involved, students from India and Bangladesh can get in touch directly with the University of Essex India Regional Office team at To apply, the application form needs to be completed and submitted to

We encourage the students to reach out to us because in addition to the GREAT Scholarships, there are many other scholarships provided by the University of Essex at UG and PG levels that a student can be eligible for.
