Technology Bursaries

The Royal Television Society is offering 'Technology Undergraduate Bursaries' which are aimed at encouraging some of the most talented computer and engineering undergraduates to consider a career in television. The scheme is available to talented students from lower income households applying to study engineering and computer sciences degrees - skills much in demand in the television industry.

All bursary recipients also get affiliate membership to The Hospital Club in London while studying and one year's free membership of the RTS post-graduation. In their final year of study, the RTS will aim to set up mentoring or placement opportunities with one of our many industry members. 

Eligibility

The RTS bursary is for people who have not previously gained a degree or other higher-education qualification and have accepted an offer as their "firm choice" to study full-time on one of the accepted undergraduate courses.

Applicants must have a household income of no more than £35,000 for the Technology Bursary and must be "home" full-time undergraduate students; applicants from other EU countries or from abroad are not eligible.
