Fees and funding

Thanks to the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal, there are a limited number of fully-funded postgraduate scholarships available at Edinburgh Napier University for qualified Scottish, British and EU students studying full-time, part-time or via distance learning, interested in leading innovation within construction and the built environment. To receive the funding – which will pay for your postgraduate tuition fees – you must agree to engage with an industry partner to identify and develop solutions to construction challenges as part of your Masters studies.

To qualify for the funding, you must identify as someone underrepresented in the construction industry, especially those identifying as women, BAME, with caring responsibilities, and/or with a disability. You must also live in Edinburgh, Fife, East Lothian, West Lothian, Midlothian or the Scottish Borders.
