Funding and scholarships
The Imperial Bursary scheme is one of the most generous of all UK universities. It is available to all Home undergraduates who are eligible for student funding from the Government.
If you are a Home student you can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan from the UK government. This will cover the entire cost of tuition for every year of study, which means you do not have to pay any money while you are studying.

The government has announced that EU students applying for entry in 2017-18 academic year will continue to be eligible for student tuition fee loans for the duration of their course. You will be eligible for fee loan throughout your course, even if the UK exits the European Union during that period.
If you are an EU student who meets certain criteria, you can apply for a Tuition Fee Loan from the UK government. This will cover the entire cost of tuition for every year of study, which means you do not have to pay any money while you are studying.
The loan is not means-tested so it doesn't matter what your household income is.
The President's Undergraduate Scholarships are the most prestigious awards the College has to offer. They are designed to reward students who demonstrate the highest academic excellence and potential. The department nominates scholarship recipients as part of the admission process.
Maurice Hancock Awards: The department makes up to 12 awards each year to first year entrants with outstanding A-level results. All eligible students are automatically considered, and the decision is made in early September once we have recieved the A-level results.
Industry Sponsorship Schemes (Home students only): The Department is a member of the IET’s Power Academy and the UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UKESF). Both schemes were established in recognition of the shortage of talented engineers for UK industry. Successful candidates are matched with sponsoring companies who provide a bursary, paid summer work placements and mentoring. Students can apply to these schemes during their 1st year of study.
