Coursework Scholarships for Current Students

Please find below a list of scholarships that are available to current postgraduate students in our Faculty. These scholarships have all been generously donated by our industry partners and we appreciate their support and commitment to our students. Please read the terms and conditions and the application instructions of each scholarship carefully.

There is closing date for each scholarship which will be determined at the time the scholarships opens (this is due to the changing opening dates each year). Applications submitted after the closing dates unfortunately, cannot be accepted.

Interview panels usually consist of an Academic and one or two representatives from the supporting industry partner.
