26 bursaries, covering the full tuition fee cost and including £10,000 maintenance funding are available for students from under-represented backgrounds to undertake postgraduate study at UCL Engineering.
The scheme supports traditionally under-represented groups, such as care-givers, those with children, those with no history of private education, and, in the case of engineering, women, to engage in graduate study at UCL. This continues UCL’s history of, and commitment to, making education available to all.
They are offered as part of the UCL Graduate Support Bursary scheme, a section of UCL’s wider initiative to support graduate Master’s students and funded through the HEFCE Postgraduate Support Scheme.
As well as financial support, postgraduate students can also access mentoring from academia and industry, skills development, and all the resources of UCL’s Graduate School. Childcare support is also available. This scheme is open to prospective students domiciled in the UK who have “Home” tuition fee status.

Several departments are offering opportunities for candidates to get a taste of the research experience before applying:
The closing date for applications to the scheme is the 30th of June, and students must have applied for their chosen Master’s programme by that date.
