"I was very happy when I found out the EU Excellence Scholarship was available. Instead of paying full international fees of £15,000, this scholarship meant I could pay £9250 which made a huge difference and allowed me to study at NTU. It was a big relief to receive this scholarship and my parents were really happy."
