International Achievement Scholarships, Sheffield Hallam University, UK


Our International Achievement Scholarships programme is open to students from any non-EU country applying to study at Sheffield Hallam University who will be enrolling in 2012/13 academic year. All full-time undergraduate and postgraduate taught courses are taking part in the programme.
