The British Council gives students £3,000 to study abroad

New Delhi: The British Council, co-owner of IELTS, the global English Language proficiency test are offering 10 students up to £3,000 toward their study in Autumn/Winter 2020 and early 2021.

The British Council is launching a campaign to give any student who wishes to take an IELTS test and study abroad up to £3,000 toward their study fees. In just 500 words, hopefuls will need to complete an online form explaining why they deserve the money and where they plan to study. The only stipulation is that they must be studying abroad with a university or college that requires IELTS as part of the admission process.

Namita S Bawa, Director – Marketing, British Council Examinations (BCEESIPL) India said, “IELTS is a gateway of opportunities for students hoping to study at one of the finest universities or planning to move to a different continent and experience a newer way of life. At the British Council, we’re proud to support everyone taking positive steps towards enhancing their academic or professional skills with IELTS.”

This is not the first time an award of this kind has been offered by the British Council. In both South and East Asia, it has supported a number of students studying abroad through its scholarship fund. This fund has enabled students to move around the globe to the UK, USA and Australia and allowed them to study at some of the best universities on offer.

To be in with a chance of winning the IELTS prize, all students will need to do is submit their details into the application form and tell the British Council why they would like to study abroad.
