PACK & SEND is the UK’s largest packing and shipping business specialising in personalised shipping solutions for individuals in the UK and around the world. Every year we help many international students to move their belongings to and from the UK as they start or complete their studies.
The arrival of COVID-19 has had a major impact on all students – especially those from outside the UK. Whilst this has caused major disruption for those graduating this year, it is going to have an even bigger impact on those starting or continuing their studies in the new academic year.
So, in recognition of the contribution that students from overseas make to this country, and the support that PACK & SEND receives from their custom, we are launching the PACK & SEND UK International Student Bursary Award.
One bursary of £1,500 will be awarded to a qualifying student commencing a recognised course in a UK university or specialist college in 2020/21 academic year. The award is intended to help fund accommodation or learning tool costs, but there are no absolute restrictions on how it can be spent. It will be paid at a rate of £500 at the start of each the three terms.
This Award is available to anyone enrolled to start a course for the 2020/21 academic year as an eligible EU resident or under a general student visa (Tier 4) in the UK.
Applications close on August 31st 2020.
