The British Council on Monday announced its largest ever scholarship programme for India with about 370 scholarships worth almost 1 million pounds for 260 undergraduate and postgraduate courses in England, Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland.

British Council also launched the GREAT Career Guide that features articles about popular subjects that Indian students choose to study in the UK and opportunities available, a press statement said.

Launched in February 2012, GREAT is a strategic international marketing programme designed to promote the UK to business, tourism and student markets worldwide to enhance the country’s global reputation.

These will be available to the students at the Education UK exhibition, which is being hosted on Tuesday in Mumbai.

“We want India’s brightest and best students to come and study at our universities in the UK…There are no limits on the numbers who can come and you can stay on to work in the UK after your study in a graduate level job,” said Andrew Soper, Counsellor (Prosperity), British High Commission, New Delhi.

The day long exhibition in Mumbai is being organised to provide information on undergraduate, postgraduate or research programmes in the UK. It will also give information to aspiring students and parents on student life and culture.

The exhibition will have participation from 70 UK universities and will also have a UK Visas and Immigration stall.

“With the launch of the GREAT Scholarship and GREAT Career guide, we aim to empower aspiring Indian students to choose the right course in the UK,” said Rob Lynes, director, British Council India.

From Mumbai, the exhibition will travel to Bangalore, Kolkata and New Delhi.

Nearly 400,000 overseas students study at UK institutions annually, of which almost 30,000 are currently from India.
