The Perfectly Spoken Scholarship Programme was specifically created to provide opportunities to learn English for adults (18+) who are refugees or from countries that are war-torn or in conflict. We also welcome applications from learners who come from low to middle income countries where for whatever reason it is difficult or impossible to access and pay for quality English language training that can provide potentially life-changing opportunities.

Who can apply? Are there any conditions?

Yes. You need to confirm

  • You are 18+
  • You have an internet connected device
  • You will commit to learning on our platform a min 5 hours each month

And you will also need to

  • Write a short explanation as to why and how learning English can help you
  • Provide the contact details of someone who can be your reference (a professional contact like a teacher, doctor employer who has known you for more than 1 year)


Since 2019 Perfectly Spoken has been working with individuals as well as UK based and international NGOs that look to provide English language training and support for refugees and other students whose lives can be changed by learning and improving their English language skills.

The common thread is the same… people who are disadvantaged through no fault of their own are not looking for charity but empowerment. The opportunity to develop English language skills empowers leaners by potentially providing them with a route to life changing opportunities in the fields of study and work.

In September 2021 we launched our first ever annual Scholarship Programme.

The specific objective of the Programme is to provide disadvantaged students genuinely free and unlimited access to all our courses. To date more than 2000 students in the UK and across a further 38 countries have benefitted from the Programme.

For year 2022-23 we are expanding the Programme and will offer an additional 1000 places, which will meet our goal of having a total of 3500 Scholarship Students for the coming year.
