The University of Southampton is proud to be a partner of the Saïd Foundation. If you are a student from Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine or Syria you may be able to apply for a Saïd Foundation scholarship to study with us.

Said Foundation scholarships are fully funded awards for masters degree study at partner institutions in the UK. These awards provide educational and training opportunities for students and young professionals with leadership potential to help their career development, enable them to achieve impact in their professional fields and ultimately to bring benefits to others in their countries of origin.
The programme is open to Syrian, Lebanese, Jordanian or Palestinian students who are resident in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine or Israel. Find out more about Saïd Foundation scholarships and the eligibility criteria.
