The Faculty Of Engineering Dean's Scholarship

The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Bristol has a number of postgraduate research scholarships for which we invite suitably qualified candidates to apply.

These prestigious scholarships will provide students with a fee waiver for 3.5 years.  Candidates must be able to fund their stipend via an alternative source, for example via the China Scholarship Council, CONACYT or another funding source.

Candidates should have a minimum 2:1 in a subject relevant to the scholarship area.  The scholarships are open to all nationalities and are renewable for up to 3.5 years subject to satisfactory progress.

The Faculty comprises the Departments of Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Engineering Mathematics, and Mechanical Engineering.  Applications are invited in any of these disciplines.

These scholarships are extremely competitive so applicants will need to demonstrate academic excellence and outstanding research potential.  Applicants whose first language is not English will also need to have the requisite language qualifications.


Applications for this scholarship are now closed.  A new date will be given in December 2018 when this scholarship will re-open.
