Universities and colleges in the UK have staff that specialise in assisting foreign students, and all British universities have a wide range of services and facilities on campus. Many offer international students university accommodation for their first year of study, with accommodation offices to assist in the other years.

Overseas Scholarships & Funding:
Each year many international students depend on scholarships awarded by the British Government to help them study in the UK. Whilst competition is tight for particular scholarships, the British council actively encourages undergrads to apply. You should also contact the nearest British Council office in Gambia, which should have details of scholarship schemes and will also be able to give you information on educational courses and on living in Britain. If there is no British Council office, then contact the British  Embassy in Fajara.
