We encourage our students that are particularly passionate about Design / Engineering - and are considering a career in this field - to apply for an Arkwright Engineering Scholarship; the most prestigious scholarship of its type in the UK.
In 2018, four of our students, Pranav Madhusudhana, Benjamin Teasdale, Yusuf Salim and Agathiyan Bragadeesh were each honoured with an Arkwright Engineering Scholarship.
With a stringent application process, all four students began by completing a “job application”-type online form in which they submit details of a current engineering / design project they have been working on. They also sit a 2-hour aptitude exam and then, if successful, are invited to a 20-minute interview.
Upon securing their awards, each of our four pupils will receive a sponsor for the following two-year period, the sponsor can vary from a high profile commercial company to a personal donor. The sponsors will provide the students with valuable, hands-on work experience, project support and mentoring to assist with their current and future steps.
We are incredibly proud of their achievements and look forward to seeing what the future brings for each of them.
