The Denys Holland Scholarship aims to support undergraduate students from any country, who without the support of the scholarship would be unable to secure the funding required to study at UCL, and who can demonstrate their intention to make full use of the activities offered by UCL and the Student Union.
What do they mean with ''The Denys Holland Scholarship aims to support undergraduate students from any country, who without the support of the scholarship would be unable to secure the funding required to study at UCL, and who can demonstrate their intention to make full use of the activities offered by UCL and the Student Union.''. I mean most students get loans and maintenance loans/grants, so is this aimed at international students?

In order to study at UCL as an international student you would need a Tier 4 Visa. To get a Tier 4 Visa you must demonstrate that you have already secured sufficient funds to study at your University of choice. How then can international students be eligible for the Denys Holland scholarship, given that one of the requirements is that students would be otherwise unable to fund their studies at UCL without the help of the scholarship???

The amount needed to ensure that we get the visa, speaking as an international student, is only 10,000 pounds, So even if we may get our visa, we definitely cannot pay for EVERYTHING.

I have asked the representative from UCL about this, and yes, international students are eligible as long as we can prove that we do not have the funds to totally finance one year of education. What I would like to know is, how competitive is it? Does any current UCL student know about this? :confused:

I'm actually an international student too, and from what I've read in the UKBA policy guidance we need to show proof of funds for the first year of our degree (£19500) and for maintenance (depends on length of course but assuming full time living in London, £9000)

Where did you hear about the £10,000 thing? It would definitely be relieved if that were the case!

As for the scholarship...shouldn't home students technically not be eligible either since all can receive full sponsorship from the UK government? (maintenance and tuition covered)

I assume then that by "unable to cover the costs of studying at UCL" means general financial hardship, ie having to take a hefty loan and not being in a position to easily repay. Applicable to both home and international students.

I've phoned the office, and there's only one of the Denys Holland scholarships being awarded this year. Given the relatively generic eligibility requirements and the high value I would imagine it's massively competitive.

Still worth applying though - especially as an international student!
