除了针对商学院以及计算机，国际政治，数学，物理等专业的研究生设立奖学金以外, Aberystwyth 大学还将为优秀的国际学生单独设立奖学金。Bangor 大学为了纪念建校125周年，也启动了其新学年的奖学金计划，任何专业的国际学生都将有机会分享总额达500万英磅的奖学金。
外部奖学金也是高校奖学金的重要来源。最近，在Swansea 大学就读管理学的一名中国学生因成绩优异，取得了攻读博士的机会，同时被授予高达4万英镑的全奖,。这笔高额全奖就是由一家国际知名的金融机构提供的。相比其他大学，Glyndwr 大学的做法独树一帜且称得上”非常慷慨”，该校欲免除所有国际学生第一年的住宿费。这也是相当可观的一笔费用了！
