What is the Li Ka Shing Foundation Lord Sandberg Memorial Scholarship?

The Li Ka Shing Foundation Lord Sandberg Memorial Scholarship has been established by the Li Ka Shing Foundation, in memory of Lord Michael Sandberg of Passfield, OBE, CBE, who passed away in 2017 and was considered a true friend of Hong Kong.

The Li Ka Shing Foundation Lord Sandberg Memorial Scholarship has been set up to support permanent Hong Kong residents planning to study a full-time three year undergraduate course at King’s.

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."

In September, I sought assistance from SI-UK for my studies in the UK, with a planned intake for January 2023. With the support of my counsellor who made exceptional efforts, I smoothly navigated the application process which culminated in the timely acquisition of my UK student visa hassle-free. I wholeheartedly endorse SI-UK to fellow students aiming to pursue their dreams of studying in the UK. Thank you!
