Engineering Scholarships

The School of Computing and Engineering offers various scholarship opportunities for Master’s by Research and PhD applicants. All scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis. Below is a guide to our standard process but some scholarship opportunities may have their own processes so it is essential that you read the relevant information for the scholarship for which you are applying.

Prior to starting your application, you should identify a potential supervisor in the School who is prepared to support your application for a scholarship. This can be done by exploring our researchers on Pure and our advertised projects on Coursefinder. Your potential supervisor will also be able to advise you on completing your application.

Applications for scholarship opportunities are made by first submitting an Expression of Interest following which successful candidates will be invited to submit a full application. Please see the webpages below for more information on this process:
