Scholarships and Fees
The 2014 IMESS scholarships have now been awarded. Regrettably, we are not able to provide individual feedback due to the high number of applications.
Academic Excellence Bursaries (€5,000 in year 2) are available for the best performing students after the completion of year 1 at UCL (for students starting in 2014).
Applications for the 2015 scholarships will open later this year – you may find more information about the process by clicking here.
There are many other possible funding opportunities available if you missed out this year: take a look through the table below for some ideas. Make sure you also check out the scholarship section of the main UCL website, available here: UCL scholarship information pages. The scholarshipportal.eu website is also a very good general source of information, available here: scholarshipportal.eu
