How to Apply
Applicants for the scholarship must have met the entry requirements of the UCAS offer from Robert Gordon University, and have formally accepted the offer.
All applicants to the scholarship will need to enrol on their chosen course at Robert Gordon University during September 2014.
The selection process begins with students completing an online application form which will be reviewed by a panel consisting of representatives from the University and Techip, who will then short list a group of high academic performers. In making the decision, the selection panel will take into account the applicant’s educational background and achievements, their interest in their chosen degree subject, and other relevant information given in their personal statement.
This group will be invited to attend an interview with Technip representatives and one successful scholar will be selected. Renewal of the scholarship each year is dependent upon continued good academic performance.
