Masters Scholarships & Fully-Funded PhD Studentships

NSIRC Masters Scholarships with Brunel University

NSIRC scholarships and PhD studentships provide students with the opportunity to gain in-depth expertise in the theory, science, and technology of mechanical engineering. 

The NSIRC Scholarship

Important update: The NSIRC Scholarship 2022/23 for Brunel University London courses has been updated. Full terms and conditions can be found on the Brunel University website.

NSIRC, in partnership with Brunel University London, is offering Masters Scholarships for students interested in studying various courses.

The scholarships are available to Home, EU, and Overseas fee-paying students who wish to pursue either full-time or part-time study in September.

The College of Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences is responsible for the scholarships, and they are substantial. It is important to note that Brunel University uses the information provided by applicants in their application form to assess fee status against regulations set by the UK government.

To determine whether you are eligible for the scholarship, you can visit the independent organization UKCISA's website to learn more about the regulations

Scholarship holders may be expected to represent Brunel University as ambassadors throughout their time at the University and to participate occasionally in various activities to help promote the University.

Activities might involve representing the programme at internal and external marketing and recruitment events, providing testimonials, and/or other initiatives as appropriate. The College or Marketing team will contact scholarship winners when participation is required.

Our Fully-Funded PhD Studentships

NSIRC also offers fully funded PhD studentships for UK, EU, and International students. These studentships will cover university fees and provide a minimum stipend of £16,000 per year for up to three years of full-time study in the UK, for British and EU students. For Overseas students, total funding is capped at £24,000 per year.

Studentships are attached to each research topic, so applicants do not need to apply for them separately, and your eligibility will be assessed during the recruitment process.
