If you are considering aerospace engineering, but are put off by the high cost of postgraduate study, this is for you.
The aim of the AeroMSc Bursary scheme is to boost the supply of skilled professionals to the sector, helping UK aerospace to retain its leading position globally. The scheme is run by the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering working together to award 500 bursaries over the next 3 years: it is jointly funded by government and a partnership of 9 major aerospace employers. If you are successful, you will have your tuition fees paid and have the opportunity to work with the world’s foremost aerospace employers.
Details of eligibility and how to apply are at www.raeng.org.uk/aeromsc.
The list of eligible programmes includes aerospace engineering MScs accredited by RAeS, and others nominated by Partner firms. Candidates wishing to study an MSc programme not on the list will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The main criterion for the award of a bursary will be whether the bursary will make a difference to you, and your motivation towards a career in UK aerospace. The scheme is open to UK and EU (home) students and graduates.
Applications will be considered in the order in which they are received and the competition will close once each year’s quota is reached. Interviews are held in London. You should therefore apply without delay: you need not yet be holding the offer of an MSc place.
