Within the department we offer a range of scholarships that may be of interest. Please find further details below.

UCL Engineering Dean’s Prize

The Dean’s Prize is a scholarship that supports outstanding overseas fee-paying research students by covering the cost of their fees. Full details can be found on the main UCL Scholarships site.

China Scholarships Council (CSC)

The CSC provides bursaries to students from China coming to study in the UK. At UCL these are linked to Dean’s Prize awards with the Dean’s Prize paying fees and the CSC paying a stipend. Full details can be found on the main UCL Scholarships site.

Students intending to study in the Faculty of Engineering Sciences at UCL who wish to apply for a CSC bursary must first have applied successfully for the Engineering Dean’s Prize.
