USA Grad School Day

Grad School Day presentation


"Thank you very much for your presentation. It has really helped me fully understand the whole process and how Fulbright can help me."
Hannah, Royal Holloway

Fulbright advisors and experts in the field will cover a variety of topics including application components, admissions exams, choosing the right institution and funding opportunities, including the Fulbright Postgraduate Scholarships. This event should not be missed by anyone considering postgraduate study in the US!
