    What companies would you like to work with? From just looking at their websites and some of their projects I quite like AECOM, Atkins, Hyder, Laing O'Rourke and Skanska, maybe Buro Happold.. I'm mainly interested in buildings/structures.

    I am also more interested in structures.
    AECOM, Arup, Atkins, Laing O'Rourke, Mott MacDonald, Hyder, Sir Robert McAlpine, Buro and even halcrow are all interesting to me. Gonna do allot more research before deciding on the 5 companies including whether they have a office in Bristol.
    How are you finding the application form?

    I really like Arup too but they aren't on the list of companies involved with the scholarship?

    The application form is slowly getting there. How about you? I'm really just jumping between the questions at the moment writing as much as I can. I think it's turning out not too bad, though I've not attempted question 5 yet - doing the easy bits first haha!

    http://www.ice.org.uk/Scholarship-an...pporting-Quest they are on this list, don't know if it is correct. Well wait and see if get an interview what companies are on offer.
    Well there is few months to go. Im bullet pointing stuff so each question. Sustainabilty and that stuff is the things im.thinking about for 5 but allot of people are going to say that. My struggle is question 2 a, the only acheivement I can think of is passong my driving test!

    Where are you hoping to study?

    Ah I see - I was looking on this page and Arup weren't listed - http://www.ice.org.uk/Scholarship-an...te-Scholarship

    Yeah that's what I was planning on writing about for Q5 also, haha!

    For 2a I'm going to write about the time I skydived for charity and then relate that to civil engineering - how the money would help change peoples lives etc.

    I've got a really easy conditional to Heriot-Watt so it looks like I'll be going there, what about yourself?

    That seems more up to date list as it has Ramboll instead of Gifford (as Gifford is now fully incorporated into Ramboll) so I'm guessing Arup isn't in it any longer. Ramboll is looks epic with the likes of Fehmarnbelt link.

    Skydiving sounds really cool, little jealous that you have something more impressive to talk about.

    I am really thinking Q5 maybe trying to make you not talk about sustainability and be unique and creative so I going to try and think of something else, trawl though the ICE and IStructE websites .

    My Firm (Conditional) is Bristol.

    Hey guys! I'll also be applying for this scholarship I was casually searching the net yesterday and I'm so glad I came across the ICE scholarship. I've heard of it before but I thought I missed the deadline, plus I went to an open day at Surrey where they had a scheme like this but was exclusive to Surrey firmers.

    For question five I was also going to put sustainability haha! But seeing as everyone else is going to put that I think I'll change it.

    I also can't really think of a big achievement. ):

    Just a quick question..

    Are you guys going to be mentioning any of the companies involved with the scholarship and why you like them etc. in your application form? It would be quite difficult to write about 5 different companies in such a small space so I'm not sure about that at all.

    Yeah I'm the same. I was also going to mention notable modern designs that have inspired me but then that's really singling out one company's work and the same situation would occur.

    I suppose that would fit, If they are notable projects the companies shouldnt feel exculded , dont even know if the companies get to read the application form
