Hello everyone,

My name is Joseph and I'm from Sri Lanka. I followed the BEng (Hons) Electronic Engineering programme of Sheffield Hallam at an affiliated local institute in Sri lanka. Graduated with a First Class and also secured the Best Performer Award.

I have applied to the MSc in Robotics programme of Cranfield University. I would like to know whether there is any scholarship available for me? Please let me know if anyone knows about it. From what's on their website, what it seems is that they don't offer any scholarship for this programme.

Hi Katherine,

Thank you for the reply. I was actually referring to a scholarship offered by the University itself. So from all the links and my own research i have found that Cranfield does not offer scholarships to students. Let's keep it aside for a moment.

The big issue is the IET accreditation for this course. Will it be sorted prior to the commencement of the 2020/2021 course in this October?

Hello Joseph_Jay,

No, the university does not offer a scholarship specifically for this course, however there is a small bursary that can be awarded by the course director. For this you would need to provide a short statement commenting on your motivations for studying the course, your reasons for choosing Cranfield, and your financial need. A bursary toward tuition fees (usually 10-20%) may then be awarded.

Regarding IET accreditaion, our MSc in Robotics is a very new course – it was actually run for the first time in 2019 – which is why the accreditation may not be in place just yet. We are working to achieve this accreditation however I am unable to tell you if/when this will be awarded.

If you would like to ask more course specific questions, please get in touch with the course director Dr Gilbert Tang (please message me for his email address) who is very passionate about the course and would be happy to answer queries relating to course content and delivery. Or you can contact the admissions team ([email protected]) for more general advice.

Thanks.
