Additional terms and conditions

The scholarships are available as tuition fee waivers. These are equivalent to the full annual Home/EU tuition fee over the first three years of study, unless you spend a year abroad or on an industrial placement. In such cases, the tuition fee waiver will be applied in year four, instead of year three.

If you are on a four-year programme, with no industrial placement, or a five-year programme with an industrial placement, the scholarship will be paid in the first three years of the degree programme only.

You need to achieve an average academic grade of at least 60 per cent, each year, in order to keep receiving the scholarship.
