As a department, we are always keen to encourage, develop and reward excellence in our students. The Fleming Scholarship is named after the first head of our Department here at UCL, 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- £1,000 in the first year and a further £1,000 in each subsequent year provided that first class honours standard performance is maintained - a total of £4,000 for an MEng student.
Just as prestigious is our Barlow Scholarship which is awarded on the same basis as the Fleming, but to an international (non-UK/EU) applicant. This scholarship is named after another of our former heads of department who also made a notable impact in the field of Electronic Engineering with his invention of the circular waveguide for long distance broadband transmission
As with the Fleming award the international student joining us with the highest academic performance will gain this scholarship, with the earliest to accept our offer being given precedence in the case of a draw. Its value is again £1,000 per annum
A number of other scholarships are available to suitably qualified candidates and we certainly encourage you to apply.
- Institution of Engineering and Technology Awards
- Royal Academy of Engineering, Engineering Leadership Advanced Awards
- The British Council lists scholarships for overseas students
UCL also offers a number of scholarships, for which we nominate the best applicants:
- UCL Faculty Undergraduate Scholarships for Excellence scheme, which provides 18 awards of £3,000 each to UCL's best performing first and second year undergraduates.

Range Rover Evoque WISE Scholarhip (entries closed on 27th July 2015).
The Range Rover Evoque WISE scholarship is supporting more young women in the UK to access the opportunity to enjoy the rewards of an engineering career. This scheme started in 2012 and is an exciting collaboration between Jaguar Land Rover and Women In Science and Engineering (WISE) offering sponsorship to women who are starting an engineering degree course at a UK university. They offer 2 undergraduate scholarships each year of £1000 plus a mentor from WISE. As well as evidence of a commitment to a career in engineering, the judges will be looking for young women who will inspire the next generation of young women to follow in their footsteps.
