We know how much time and effort goes into your studies, and we also know that a high-quality education is a significant and important investment in your future. To make the incredible opportunity of studying abroad more affordable, there are 3 types of scholarship opportunities through Kaplan International Pathways:

  1. Pathway scholarships (UK and US)
  2. Progression scholarships (UK and US)
  3. Scholarships for entry directly to a degree (US only)

Scholarships for international students

Pathway scholarships

We offer partial tuition scholarships to qualifying pathway students in the UK and USA. These are awarded based on your academic achievements in your previous study, and are one-off tuition discounts at the point of admission to a pathway course.

Progression scholarships

Progression from UK pathway courses to UK universities

We work with many of our partner universities to reward our best-performing students. If you finish your pathway course with excellent grades and attendance, you could qualify for a partial tuition scholarship for your university degree.

Here are just a few examples of students whose hard work and academic achievements have earned them scholarships from our partner universities:
