Fourteen Basuto students are at present studying in the United Kingdom. During the years 1955–57 the following numbers of Government scholarships were granted to Basuto for study in the United Kingdom: 1955, 6; 1956, 6; and 1957, 2.

The qualifications required by the institutions to which the students are going are required for the acquisition of such scholarships. Other scholarships were provided by the British Council, the Basuto National Treasury and the Sethabathaba Fund.
