Student experiences

"After four years of undergraduate study, being granted the Scholarship to complete my postgraduate has enabled me to continue my progression into a professional area a lot more easily and swiftly than would have otherwise been possible.  I would encourage anyone with a keen interest in the sector to consider the courses at ICIT, as it really is a world class environment in which to learn".
Emma Dunsmuir,  PG Funded place recipient, MSc Renewable Energy Development

"The Scottish Funding Council bursary was a great personal boost to my masters. The ease with which it was received was also excellent. Many find themselves balancing university and part-time employment to keep themselves financially afloat. Having this bursary allowed me to focus less on part-time work and achieve grades which have more than surpassed my expectations going into the course".
Douglas Rowe, PG Funded place recipient, MSc Brewing & Distilling
