The Aero MSc Bursary Scheme

The Aero MSc Bursary Schemeoffers tuition fee bursaries and invites applications from home students vwho can secure a place on an eligible MSC programme

The aim is to boost the supply of skilled professionals to the sector, helping UK aerospace maintain and consolidate 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 three years: it is jointly funded by government and a partnership of nine major aerospace employers. (Start date March 2013)

Details of the scheme and how to apply are at, together with the full list of eligible MSc programmes.

The list includes all aerospace engineering MScs which are accredited by RAeS as further learning for CEng. It also includes many 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 the candidate’s motivation and commitment to a career in UK aerospace.
Applications will be considered in the order in which they are received and the competition will close once each year’s quota is reached. Candidates should therefore be encouraged to apply without delay. They need not yet be holding the offer of an MSc place.
