Scholarships and Student Funding

School of Engineering Scholarships

Well-qualified students entering Electronics and Electrical Engineering programmes are eligible for scholarships.

School of Engineering Industrial Scholarships


To be eligible, you must be taking programmes with UCAS codes beginning H6.

The School of Engineering Industrial scheme provides financial support of £1,500 per year, for up to three years to students with the potential to obtain a first-class degree, funded by a number of companies.

This sum will be paid for the years up to, and including, the third year of the programme of study.

Students may elect to enter the programme at the start of the second year. The sum of £1,500 would then be payable for only two years.

Students who do not maintain a good performance on the programme may lose the scholarship.

Students awarded an external scholarship through the UKESF scheme also become ineligible for a School of Engineering award. Please check with the School for further information if you are in any doubt about your eligibility and refer to the UKESF link below.

Industrial partners

At the end of the third year, the Industrial partners will select students that they wish to take on as project students. Normally these are the most able students in the third year of the programme.


Interested students need to put in a brief application. Scholarship payments will be issued during the first semester of each year.

To find out more about this scholarship, speak to the School of Engineering on Visiting Day.
