Partial scholarships are available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students who have been offered a place on a full-time course at Brunel. Please refer to the International Scholarship web pages for more details.

Doctoral research scholarships and studentships

Research scholarships may be available across the full range of our research activity. Please note that award numbers and amounts vary each year and in each School, and only a very small number – or none at all – may be available for your programme. Check the web pages  for your School or Research Institute for details and eligibility information.

PhD studentships may consist of a cash scholarship, payment of your tuition fees, a wage for teaching or a combination of the three. For vacancies, details of eligibility and how to apply, please visit course Job vacancies page or check the web pages for your School or Research Institute.

Funding for extra-curricular activities

Some funding opportunities exist for those students undertaking certain extra-curricular activities. These awards do not cover living costs or tuition fees, but are available to both taught and research students.

Music Awards

A number of Music Awards are awarded each year. Award Holders have all or part of the cost of their individual music tuition covered throughout their period of study at Brunel.

Brunel Graduate Discount

Brunel has always offered a reduction in PG tuition fees for Brunel alumni. Brunel students who take up postgraduate education could be eligible to receive the '15% graduate discount'. A Brunel alumnus who has a first class undergraduate degree can receive both fee reductions – Academic Excellence and Graduate discounts – a total of approx. 27.5% of the tuition fee.

The Graduate Discount will not apply if you receive the Women in Engineering Scholarship  or the Master's Scholarships.
