Undergraduate scholarships and grants
The IET offers a range of scholarships of up to £3000 per annum to students about to commence an IET accredited degree programme in the UK.
All applicants for IET Undergraduate Scholarship and Grants, including IET Diamond Jubilee Scholarships, must be on an IET accredited undergraduate degree programme.
The IET accredits programmes across a diverse spectrum, including electrical, electronic, manufacturing, mechanical, systems and software engineering and specialist areas such as bioengineering, nanotechnology and renewable energy. Some engineering courses may be accredited by professional bodies or Institutions other than the IET, this can be checked via the Engineering Council’s accredited courses search:
The absence of IET accreditation could mean that the programme is accredited by another professional body, it is going through the re-accreditation process or the university has not asked the IET to accredit the programme. See the list of IET accredited programmes.
