Fellowships Resources for Student Applicants

UK University Information

Certain fellowships programmes (such as Commonwealth and Chevening) allow students from a variety of nations to apply broadly to UK universities. We hope this document will allow students to better understand the unique departmental features of a variety of universities in the United Kingdom. Attached are notes made available based on visits to UK university campuses in June 2016. Students who wish to have access to the respective slides from these universities should reach out to Paul Wilt for file sharing access (paul.wilt@yale-nus.edu.sg).
