There is no special application process – the awards will be made automatically to all eligible students admitted to the School of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Birmingham who apply by the end of September to commence their studies in the September/October of their year of entry.

Students who are in receipt of support from other funding bodies which wholly cover their tuition fees are not eligible for any of the awards. Students in receipt of part-funding should contact the admissions tutor to check their eligibility.

Awards will be made to students commencing any programme offered by the School.
