Yes, it's true; you can live out your dreams and study in the UK for half the price with the Heriot-Watt University Malaysia (HWUM) Tan Sri Yeoh Tiong Lay Global Scholarship!

Sponsored by the YTL Foundation, this scholarship is offering 50% and 100% tuition fee waivers to deserving, high achieving Malaysian students intent on pursuing undergraduate degrees at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia for the September 2019 or January 2020 intakes.

Scholarship winners will also get the opportunity to study their 2nd year abroad at HWUM's prestigious UK campus, with a 50% waiver off their total UK tuition fees. So if you don’t have the financial means to pursue your studies overseas, now is your chance.
