What is BU's Global position?


Scholarships and grants

There is a varied range of scholarships available for students to reward academic excellence, help international students access higher education and to simply provide further financial assistance. Scholarships don’t have to be paid back and are usually awarded as discount to your tuition fees (a fee waiver), which you will see when you enrol.

You will need to apply for certain scholarships, once you have submitted a course application, while others will be awarded automatically if you meet the specified criteria. External websites, such as The Scholarship Hub, can also help you find additional funding to support your studies so don't forget to research those too.

The UK is ranked fifth in the world for innovation and three of the world’s top ten universities for Engineering are in the UK. Understanding mechanical systems is one of the oldest forms of engineering knowledge, but it’s still one of the most highly sought after. UK courses will help you understand everything you need for your career, from stress analysis and thermodynamics to the mechatronic insights you need to go into manufacturing and robotic automation. Join this webinar and learn from university experts why a UK Engineering qualification will open doors for you.
