I recently learned some bad news for international students in the UK.  The ORS (i.e., the ORSAS) scholarship scheme that paid the difference between local and international fees has been scrapped.  It was funded by the UK national government and there are apparently no plans to replace it.  See here for details.

For significant funding at Durham, they give Doctoral Fellowships to pay for all fees, but it’s really unfortunate to lose this nice piece of funding.
