As a department, we are always keen to encourage, develop and reward excellence in our students. UCL offers a number of scholarships, access awards and bursaries for overseas and home/EU students who hold offers of a place at UCL.
- The Royal Television Society
The Royal Television Society is an educational charity and the leading forum for discussion and debate on all aspects of television. The Society runs a Technology Bursary that aims to promote access to careers in television, to support the industry to recruit talented graduates and to build links between broadcasters and education providers.
The bursary provides £1,000 a year to support living expenses, membership of the Royal Television Society and affiliate membership of the Hospital Club. As well as providing funds to support living expenses, the bursary provides a unique opportunity to get to know more about the world of television whilst studying. Prospective students with a firm offer to study Computer Science or Engineering at University College London may be eligible to apply for this bursary.
The RTS Bursary Scheme submission window is now open and will close on the 30 September 2021.

- 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.
