In recognition of its excellent support from industry, the School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences can offer industrial funding for a number of competitive awards.
A full award will be a bursary for full UK fees. Successful students will typically be funded by a full or partial bursary. School Masters Bursaries (SMBs) will be between a minimum of 50% and a maximum of 100% of a full bursary, payable towards fees.
You should prepare a statement no longer than one side of A4, stating:
Email your statement to the relevant MSc Admissions Tutor:
Deadline for receipt of applications is Monday 30 July 2013. The MSc Admissions Tutor will make the final decision, and applicants will be advised of the outcome on or shortly after this date. You should note, however, that the MSc Admission Tutor may allocate bursaries at any time and it may be that all SMBs are allocated before the deadline. We would encourage an early application. The awards will be paid against the students’ fees prior to registration.
British students applying to study one of the following full time courses may be able to apply for a British Hydrological Society Studentship.
The British Hydrological Society is aware of the changing funding environment within the UK with the demise of NERC Master’s degree funding. Given the unique position of the British Hydrological Society to provide leadership, we are keen to support potential MSc students wishing to pursue development of their academic expertise in hydrology. The Society, as such, is proposing to provide a small number of studentships ~£1000 towards the costs of the Master’s degree (MSc/MRes only) tuition costs at a UK Higher Education Institution.
An Application form and full details of candidate eligibility is attached but can also be downloaded from the British Hydrological Society website at http://www.hydrology.org.uk/awards_prizes.php
Please note the deadline for submission of completed applications is 9 August 2013.
Complete applications should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. No postal applications will be accepted.
