Universities Wales (Global Wales)

The Global Wales programme is co-funding Chevening Scholarships in Vietnam and India, in any subject area. Find out more.

As part of the world-renowned UK higher education system, Welsh universities offer quality higher education qualifications that are respected by employers and academics worldwide.

Spanning the length of the country, our universities offer a diverse range of locations and learning experiences, from vibrant, world-class cities through to breathtaking mountains and coastal locations.

Given the substantial cultural and economic impact of universities’ international activities, Universities Wales has joined together with the Welsh Government, British Council Wales and the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) to form the Global Wales partnership.

This year the Global Wales programme are co-funding a total of 5 Chevening Scholarships in Vietnam and India, in any subject area.

Vietnamese and Indian students can use these scholarships at these universities:

  • Aberystwyth University
  • Bangor University
  • Cardiff Metropolitan University
  • Glyndwr University
  • Swansea University
  • University of South Wales
  • University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Awards are also available for Vietnamese students to study at Cardiff University.

We are delighted to partner with Chevening to offer aspiring students from Vietnam and India the opportunity to study a master’s degree who might not otherwise be able to study in Wales, contributing to building the capabilities of future leaders in the countries we have committed to work with.
