International Scholarships with Najah Expo

October welcomes the return of Najah Expo in Abu Dhabi and Dubai for its 16th successful year of guiding students into higher education around the world. A strong focus of the event is to uncover the endless possibilities of fully funded and part-funded scholarships available to attendees on their doorstep and much further afield.

Has it ever crossed your mind that you could train to be an engineer at Harvard? Or a lawyer at Oxford? Has the cost always positioned this goal just out of reach? We at Najah can help you achieve your goal, by explaining how to get an international scholarship and the qualifications required to obtain that dream career.

Our panel of experts will deep dive into the complexities of studying abroad to identify how this can become your reality. Join our network to connect with global colleges and universities offering scholarships for international students. Write your own narrative that doesn’t contain “I wish”, more so that “I will do”.

Grab your boater and oar, we’re off for poetry and punting in Oxford! If you don’t know what that means you soon will! Register now to rub shoulders with our stellar lineup of experts covering all educational avenues.

Najah Expo Helps Students Connect with International Scholarship Providers

 Typically, students are fully aware that there is a cost attached to higher education, but you could be eligible for free tuition…why? The thought of student debt that takes years to pay back can be off-putting and deter capable students from progressing their qualifications. But what many are unaware of is the opportunities, both abroad and in their country of origin, to apply for a scholarship. The diversity of the differing types of scholarship is broad so it’s worth investigating to see whether you fit into the eligibility criteria for your chosen course. Depending on where you apply, a secured place on the undergraduate program may be necessary before applying for the scholarship, in other instances, they are obtained hand in hand.

Who do I apply to?

Scholarship opportunities aren’t just offered directly by the universities themselves, the UK government, for example, runs ‘Student support’ schemes to fund higher education and post-graduate courses for international students, this is another route to consider if you know you want to study in England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. The Australia Awards Scholarships include a contract between the Commonwealth of Australia and the applicant whereby full tuition fees are granted following compliance with the scholarship terms. Globally, external organisations and charities also run recruitment programs to help place international students in higher education.


“Najah Expo really opened my eyes to what was on offer for me as an expat student living in Dubai wanting to study abroad. I had no idea I could apply for a scholarship to do so and now I’m in my second year of law school in the US.”
