Nanotechnology masters (MSc) studentships

There are a range of scholarship and studentship opportunties to help pay for tuition fees and living expenses. Please note that in most instances you will need to make an application to study BEFORE applying for these awards

UK/EU applicants

A number of studentships are available for the best applicants. The highest level of award, for exceptionally qualified candidates, covers payment of tuition fees at UK/EC level, and a monetary scholarship prize. Lower level awards cover UK/EC tuition fees only. These studentships are available on a competitive basis only to students who are both UK/EC nationals and residents. We expect to award tuition fee scholarships to highly qualified applicants most years, but due to the high quality threshold, we do not expect to award scholarship prizes very often.

You can access studentship/scholarship opportunities through either the Leeds or Sheffield University website:

International scholarships in nanoscience and technology

In addition to above general scholarships, two nanofolio-specific scholarships in the amount of £1500 for international students are available for the following academic year. These will be awarded on academic merit to outstanding applicants. Applicants should normally hold or expect to hold, a first class degree.

Relevant industrial experience and research work and/or project work will also be taken into consideration.

The yearly closing date is 15th March for a start date of September in the same calendar year.

Applicants must make an application for study on one of the Nanoscale programmes before they can be considered for these scholarships.
