About this award

The Department for Education, in partnership with the British Council, has launched the Warm Welcome Scholarship Scheme to support individuals in the UK with links to Afghanistan to access higher education. The University of Hull is proud to be able to participate in this award.

The scheme will offer scholarships for eligible students already studying in the UK (In-Year Scholarships) and to new students starting a full-time undergraduate or postgraduate programme in the academic year 2022/23 (Full Degree Scholarships).

When evaluating applications, the British Council will prioritise selected subjects.

The University of Hull will offer up to five Full Degree Scholarships across our undergraduate, postgraduate taught and postgraduate research degrees.

Maintenance funding will be paid to scholars on a quarterly basis for the duration of their studies (maximum of 3 years for undergraduate and PhD; maximum of 1 year for postgraduate taught).
