Funding and Scholarships

There is a lot of competition for a limited amount of funding. You can find information on suggested sources of funding here . It must be noted that none of the suggestions is guaranteed. Do not travel to the UK unless you are sure that you have the funds available to pay for your studies AND your living expenses, as it is extremely difficult to make funding arrangements once you have left your home country.

You can find IIHD course fees here
