Alumni bursary

If you are a former student of the University of Leeds you may be eligible for a 10% alumni tuition fee bursary. 

Who is eligible?

  • To be eligible you must have obtained a full undergraduate or postgraduate degree award from the University of Leeds. This applies regardless of when you graduated (eg obtained BA, BSc, BEng, BEd, LLB, MA, MSc, MPhil, PhD, MLitt, MEd, MEng, MPhys, MSci, MChem, MMath, MBiol etc).
  • The University allows registration onto a research degree if students have completed all the requirements for a Masters degree but have not yet been awarded. This is on the condition that the student supplies confirmation of the award of the qualification at a specific date after commencing the research degree. Applicants in this situation are also eligible to be considered for an Alumni Tuition Fee Bursary.
  • You must register for an award leading to a Masters or PhD.
  • You must be self financing. You are still deemed to be self financing if you have support from a friend or relative or if you are in receipt of other University of Leeds scholarships and awards.
  • The bursary is open to students who are commencing their studies from September 2013; the bursary cannot be awarded retrospectively.

Value of the award:

The University will pay 10% of your tuition fees for each year you are registered and studying on the course (pro rata for part year programmes). The bursary will not be applied in the overtime (writing-up) period for research degree students.

The alumni bursary can be awarded in conjunction with other University of Leeds scholarships and awards; the 10% bursary is calculated based on the net fee remaining ie after other scholarship and awards have been deducted.

How to apply:

If you think you are eligible you need to email phd@lubs.leeds.ac.uk. In the email you will need to provide information regarding your former studies, the course you have applied for and how you are funded for your tuition fees. We will need to verify that you are a former student and you will need to confirm that you have read the terms and conditions and are self financing for your tuition fees. You may be asked to provide evidence of your former University of Leeds award. If your course is of more than one year's duration you will not have to re-apply for the bursary each year.

Who is not eligible?

  • Students who are funded at any time during their studies by a sponsor, ie have your tuition fees paid for by an employer or other industry or business sponsor, government, research council, charity or other third party organisation.
  • Students on courses that are run in conjunction with other universities and where they are joint awards.
  • Students who have not obtained a full undergraduate or postgraduate award from the University of Leeds. Programmes of study that do not lead to a degree award include pre-sessional programmes in English Language, English Language Foundation Programmes, occasional study programmes, exchange programmes, any certificate/ diploma programme or any continuing professional development programme.

    Programmes which are not eligible for the Alumni Bursary are:
  • Postgraduate Diplomas or Postgraduate Certificates.
  • PGCE programmes.
  • A BA, BSc, Master's or PhD when studied as an intercalating part of the MBBS or BDS programmes.
  • Programmes that are part of professional training programmes for dentists or doctors.
  • Jointly awarded degrees.

Please note:

The University will review the bursary annually and reserves the right to vary or withdraw this bursary at its sole discretion but changes will not be applied retrospectively.

You must advise the University if at any time (before or after you register on your course) you obtain funding for your tuition fees from sponsors. If you are found to be in breach of your commitments, in any way not acted in good faith, or not responded fully or accurately to a University request for information, the University is entitled to immediately suspend a bursary. It may also then recover the 10% previously paid.

ESRC Collaborative Studentship in climate change and technology adaptation... (Deadline 15 May 2015)

ESRC Collaborative Studentship in climate change and technology adaptation to support service continuity and flood response and resilience

Application deadline: Friday 15th May 2015

Download an application form

Project Information

ICT and telecommunications networks form a key part of today's critical national infrastructure, essential to proper functioning of society as well as facilitating rapid response to emergencies such as natural disasters.  Climate change is causing, as a long term trend, an increase in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events in the UK.  This includes, for example, flooding from surface water runoff in built environments, from rivers and from coastal surges.  Technology infrastructure providers need to maintain service against this increasing risk to infrastructure and, equally importantly, to field-force personnel safety and ability to respond.

This research will look holistically at steps already taken towards climate change adaptation to support service continuity and flood resilience as well as how the use of ICT can facilitate greater resilience, both in operations and for societal benefit.  Work undertaken by Allen and colleagues contributes to a growing body of research which posit that greater resilience and a more effective response to climate change related events should include decentralised models of decision making, allow improvisation and include citizens. The emerging model advocated at Leeds and elsewhere also points to the use of emerging radical new IT infrastructures (such as mobile ad-hoc networks) to allow new ways of working rather than reinforcing existing models of infrastructure provision and information flow.  The work will explore the link between these emerging models and technology design for resilience in terms of assets and processes, the role of ICT in environmental sensing solutions and services, as well as the role of mobile devices and solutions (eg LTE or 5G based) and their adaptability to enable efficient end-to-end effective response.

BT will be a project partner for this research. In the UK, BT is the leading communications services provider, selling products and services to consumers, small and medium sized enterprises and the public sector. Additionally, BT sells wholesale products and services to communications providers in the UK and around the world.
