About Brunel University London and Scholarship

Brunel University London, one of several British universities established in the 1960s following the recommendations of the Robbins Report on higher education, is often characterized as a “plate glass university.” The institution’s roots can be traced back to Acton Technical College, which underwent a division in 1957. Following this division, Acton Technical College continued to serve technicians and craftsmen, while the newly established Brunel College of Technology, named in honor of the renowned British engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, was dedicated to the education of chartered engineers.

The Brunel University London is currently inviting applications from exceptional students for the International Bursary. This studentship opportunity is available for the academic session 2023/2024. The fee reduction is specifically designed for fully self-funded international students who are applying for postgraduate taught courses at Brunel University London. As part of this bursary, Brunel University London will extend to selected candidates an annual stipend of £18,062 in addition to covering their full-time Home/EU tuition fees.
