New Graduate Support Scheme

Aims to attract more women and disadvantaged students into engineering

UCL is one of the world's leading universities with a tradition of accessibility which dates back to its beginning. It was founded in 1826 to open up education in England for the first time to students of any race, class or religion. It was also the first university to welcome female students on equal terms with men.

UCL has now launched a new Graduate Support Scheme continuing UCL's tradition of making high quality education accessible. A total of 10 bursaries, consisting of a fee waiver and a living allowance of £10,000, are available for female students and students from underprivileged backgrounds on masters courses in Electronic and Electrical Engineering. There is also childcare support to assist parents whilst studying, and mentoring by researchers and senior managers from the technology industry for successful applicants.

The closing date for applications onto the Graduate Support Scheme is: 30th June 2014.
