Other Scholarships

A number of external scholarships are available to suitably qualified candidates and we certainly encourage you to apply.



Fleming Scholarship

5 scholarships of £4,000 are available for home/EU students

The Fleming Scholarship is named after the first head of our Department here at UCL, Sir John Ambrose Fleming, who is often known as the 'father of modern electronics' for his invention of the thermionic valve. The scholarship is awarded to the student entering the department with the best school/college examination performance, who qualifies for UK/EU fees status. Where there is a tie, the scholarship is awarded to the student who first accepted our offer unconditionally, a good reason to be prompt in decision making!
In addition to the prestige that comes with the award, there is also significant money - £4,000. 5 scholarships will be given to home/EU students with £2000 given on enrolment and a further £2000 given later in the year provided that a distinction is achieved in the work assessed during term 1.

All new students will be considered - there is no need to apply specifically.
