Funding and scholarships
Postgraduate funding for engineering
Centres for Doctoral Training
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. Please follow the links on our PhD opportunities page
Alternatively, there are a number of engineering research groups with PhD vacancies on offer.
Funding opportunities for postgraduate taught courses are very limited. 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.
Top students are recognised with faculty and subject-specific prizes.
Many prizes are kindly sponsored by industrial partners.
Postgraduate study loan
UK and EU students may be eligible for a Postgraduate Master's Loan (conditions apply).
