Overview

The Bill Taylor Scholarship is open to students in Year 2 and Year 3 of the MEng/BEng (Hons) Civil and Environmental Engineering.

This scholarship is aimed at a well-rounded individual who's interested in working in the civil engineering sector.

If your application is successful, you will:

  • Complete a summer placement prior to the start of Year 4

The summer placement will last a minimum of eight weeks and will be paid. Students must be flexible in travelling anywhere in Scotland to take up their summer placement.

Students who withdraw, fail to achieve the required results to progress on the course or do not complete the allocated 12-week industry placement in Year 3 and summer work placement will cease to receive further money from the Scholarship Fund.

Eligibility 

To be considered for this scholarship you must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Take part in the 12-week industry placement at BEAR Scotland (Please note: due to the ongoing pandemic, the placement will not run in Semester 2 of 2021). 
  • Be willing to take part in a paid summer placement anywhere in Scotland (Students will be kept up to date if summer placements will run in 2021). 
  • Currently enrolled in Year 2 or Year 3 of the MEng/BEng (Hons) Civil and Environmental Engineering course.
  • Be willing to take part in publicity materials for the scholarship if successful.

Further details including salary will be discussed during the interview process.

Please note: You do not need to take up the graduate training programme if you do not wish to after you have completed your degree.

Interested in this School?

I believe my success is due to the great support provided by SI-UK. I was advised the right IELTS courses to attend and they also helped with my visa application. I really want to share with you my positive experience and I would definitely recommend SI-UK to my friends.
