University of Aberdeen offers sympathetic response and practical aid packages

to students affected by South-East Asian financial crisis

The University of Aberdeen has responded sympathetically to the financial crisis in South-East Asia offering current and prospective students from the area practical aid packages to help them complete their studies.

Dr Adrian Marshall, the University of Aberdeen’s International Student Recruitment Director, explains:

“We recognise that many students from Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, South Korea and Thailand have been experiencing financial difficulties due to changing circumstances in their home countries. Aberdeen University has taken a number of measures to offer practical solutions to these problems.

We have set up an emergency fund to which individual students can apply during the current session for immediate assistance with their general living expenses. We will also consider some assistance towards tuition fees if these have not already been fully paid. Current students will be able to apply for a grant towards fees and living expenses for the subsequent years of their studies.

The university will also allow South-East Asian students, who are experiencing particular financial difficulties and who successfully complete their respective courses, to graduate and repay any remaining fees at a later date.”

Students from South-East Asia currently studying or considering studying at the University of Aberdeen will be encouraged to know that new ‘scholarships’ are being created, tailored specifically for them with effect from session 1998-99. Some of these scholarships will amount to £2,000, others to 10% of the students’ tuition fees.
