The ISIC Association, StudyPortals and British Council IELTS are launching The Global Study Awards  to ultimately encourage young people to study abroad as part of their tertiary studies in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.


The Global Study Awards will be available to prospective students in all countries worldwide. The Global Study Awards will enable the successful candidate(s) to study abroad, on any chosen undergraduate or postgraduate programme at a higher education institution. The Global Study Awards cannot be used by a successful candidate to study domestically.

An individual global study award has a maximum value of £10,000. The Award prize will be applied toward the cost of tuition fees in the first instance, paid directly to the Higher Education Institution that the successful candidate will attend.
