Engineering Scholarships

The School of Computing and Engineering offers various fee waiver and scholarship opportunities for Master’s by Research and PhD applicants. All scholarship schemes are assessed on a competitive basis judged on academic record, aptitude for research, understanding of the proposed research project, knowledge of the background/literature, research skills and motivation. If you are shortlisted then you will be invited to an interview with the School Fee Waiver Panel (conducted remotely via video conferencing as appropriate).

Prior to application, you should identify a potential supervisor in the School who is prepared to support your application for a fee waiver or scholarship. This can be done by discovering the research projects advertised on Coursefinder or, if you wish to explore further opportunities or propose your own project, then you will need to approach potential supervisors who can be identified through their Pure profiles. They will also be able to advise you on completing your application.

When you are ready to apply, please complete the online application form. If you wish to be considered for a School Fee Waiver or a Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship, please clearly indicate this on your application.
