As this scholarship is awarded based on your academic results, the actual scholarship selection made by the EIT Scholarship panel is not confirmed until you have completed the previous teaching period and all results have been released.

Please do not let this stop you from applying; you do not have to wait until the release of your academic results as we can apply scholarships retrospectively and refund any difference in tuition fees due if you are successful.


Please select a maximum of 3 courses on this form, all the information regarding your selected courses is provided via separate emails and a highly trained Course Advisor will be in touch to discuss your personal circumstances.
