There is no special application process for these scholarships – awards will be made by the decision of a scholarship panel held in the School of Mechanical Engineering after the start of the autumn semester.

All eligible UK and EU students admitted to the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Birmingham by the end of September to commence their studies in the October of their year of entry will be considered. Awards can be made to students following any programme offered by the School, including Foundation Year students.

Students in receipt of scholarships from organisations other than the University of Birmingham may receive the School Excellence Scholarship in addition to their other awards.

Students following programmes in Metallurgy and Materials are offered alternative scholarships by that School.
