Sponsoring a foreign student

I am interested in sponsoring a foreign student to attend a British University. How would I start going about that?
Answered by Alison Patterson
Hi

You could talk to a single university and set up a scheme with one university.

Alternatively, you could contact the British council:
www.britishcouncil.org/

I think it partly depends on where you are located. If you are in the UK we would suggest the first option; if abroad, we would recommend you speak to your British Council office in the first instance.

It might also be worth speaking to UKCISA on (0) 20 7288 4330. Speak to Dominic Scott (chief executive), Duncan Lane or Julie Allen. [institutions.ukcisa.org.uk/Info-for-universities-c.../]

Good luck!
