Postgraduate Taught

Leverhulme Trust
Each year until further notice, the Leverhulme Trust will offer one bursary to a suitable candidate with an offer to study for any of the three Architectural Science Masters . The bursary pays the academic fees and provides about £12,000 for living expenses (subject to final adjustment). Only UK residents applying for full-time study are eligible. The award will be made on the grounds of outstanding talent and financial need from applicants expressing a wish to be considered. Those interested should attach a letter to their application forms making a case for receiving this support. It is intended to make the selection by the end of the July preceding the session. The recipient cannot also be in receipt of another state or private academic award.

Panasonic Trust Fellowships
All three Architectural Science Masters meet the criteria for Panasonic Trust Fellowships. Every year the Trust awards a limited number of fellowships (worth £8,000 each for the 2009-10 academic year) to engineers attending full-time Masters’ courses in the UK on subjects related to the Environment and Sustainability. To be eligible, a candidate must be a UK citizen qualified to degree level in engineering or a related discipline, have membership at any grade of a professional engineering institution, and have some industrial experience.
