Funding for Overseas Research Students Awards Scheme (ORSAS) is no longer available.

ORSAS was set up to attract high-quality international students to the United Kingdom to undertake research by providing the difference in fees charged to overseas students. Participating institutions received an annual grant from the relevant UK funding body to fund ORSAS. The grant was allocated by formula and set to run from 2006-07 until the end of 2008-09.

ORSAS funding was phased out gradually over 2009-10 and 2010-11.
