University of Winchester



An international university

The University of Winchester values international agreements such as the Bologna Accords which have integrated UK higher education into the European community and so help our students to experience education in a different context and help our graduates to be more mobile in the job market.

We have academic staff from all over the world. Their different intellectual approaches, as well as the different cultures they originate from, once again enrich the diversity of the University. Our staff research has an international dimension both in terms of its scope and its quality.

We welcome international partnerships with other universities and groups such as charities and non-governmental organisations. They bring great benefit to our teaching, learning and research.

Through our partnerships we ensure that the broadest possible base of knowledge exists in the University and that we are as aware of global perspectives as we can be. Our focus on internationalisation makes us outward-facing.

International students

The University of Winchester warmly welcomes international students from America, Europe, the Far East and elsewhere. They make a vital contribution to the diversity of the University and to the diversity of Winchester as a city. They bring fresh perspectives to bear upon issues and they show us that different points of view matter. Our intellectual environment is therefore enriched by the multiple cultures which we encompass within the community of the University. This means that studying at Winchester, whether you are an international or a home student, makes you part of a global community.

Our values:

We value freedom, justice, truth, human rights and collective effort for the public good. The plans and actions of the University of Winchester are founded in these ideals together with the following values:

Social justice

We seek to embody social justice and develop our students as effective and fulfilled global citizens. They will be prepared to challenge the status quo and will have the strength to stand up for what they believe to be true.


The University celebrates its Christian foundation, and welcomes people of all faiths and none. Together, we aim to explore the mystery of life and to grow in wisdom and love.


Permeability, agility and imagination are central to our thinking: we endeavour to act as a crucible for the generation and exchange of knowledge.

The International Scholarships are open to all International Student applicants from non - EU countries. The application process starts in October each year and the deadline is the 30th June each year. It is a competitive scholarship so there are a limited number of awards available and the scholarship committee will meet in July to assess all applications.

Scholarships are most commonly awarded to students who can demonstrate how it would be useful for them when studying their course and how they intend to use their study experience to benefit their home country once they have completed their programme at the University of Winchester.

To be eligible for an International Scholarship you should:

1.      Be from a non-EU country

2.      Have been made a Conditional/Unconditional offer to study at the University of Winchester.

3.      Have accepted your offer

4.      Submit an application form before the 30th June in the year you will join the University.

Current International Students at the University of Winchester are eligible to apply providing they apply before the 30th June for the scholarship to be awarded in the next academic year. They must also be eligible to progress to the next year of study.
