Funding and scholarships
Postgraduate funding for engineering
There are a number of funding opportunities for postgraduates.
Grants from the UK Research Councils and other major funders support doctoral training. There are 13 engineering-related centres, where funded PhDs are available to train and equip you with the skill to tackle global challenges.
Funding is available for a number of PhD projects within the faculty. Alternatively, a number of research groups have PhD vacancies on offer. Please follow the links on our PhD opportunities page.
Funding opportunities for postgraduate taught courses are very limited. There is currently one studentship available:
Students wishing to study for a taught Masters degree need to secure the majority of their funding before beginning their studies. Most students studying taught Masters courses opt to take out a bank loan and/or use savings. Self-funding students can also apply to the Access to Learning Fund for financial assistance and application forms are available from the Fees and funding pages.
The top students in all departments are recognised with industry-sponsored prizes. Use the email links below to request information on the current awards.
The UK government is offering a Postgraduate Master's Loan to UK and EU nationals (conditions apply).
