If you are an English language teacher from outside the UK, you can apply for the A.S.Hornby Educational Trust scholarships awarded every year for Masters in English language teaching (ELT) at the University of Warwick. The scholarship applies for studies between October 2020 and September 2021.

The scholarships cover all the costs in the UK including a monthly stipend to cover accommodation and living expenses, tuition fees, and return air tickets, visa and language test costs.


Eligible applicants must have at least three years’ full-time English language teaching experience and a full university degree. Applicants also need to have the level of English proficiency required by the university. This is normally assessed according to IELTS (or another accepted language test) – scholars require an overall IELTS score of 6.5, with no less than 6.0 in any of the categories, and 6.5 for writing. The Hornby Scholarships are intended to support experienced English language teachers who have the potential to make a significant future contribution to English language teaching and teachers in their countries.


Applicants are selected by a four-stage process. In the first stage, the quality of the application form is assessed. In the second stage, selected applicants are invited for an interview at the British Council office in their country of origin. In the third stage, selected applicants apply to the university. In the fourth stage, the successful applicant is accepted by the university. Only at this stage is the scholarship award is confirmed with the applicant.


If you are interested in applying for a Hornby scholarship, please go to our global TeachingEnglish website, where you can find more information and the document 'Hornby Scholarship Applicant Information'.  Please gather all of the information specified in the document before starting the online application form, because you cannot leave the application in the middle of completing it and return to finish it another time.
