Women in STEM Scholarship

If you're an international student from Brazil and self-funding your postgraduate studies in a STEM subject, you could be eligible for a full tuition fee discount to relevant courses in our School of Mathematics Statistics and Actuarial Science and School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering.

The Women in STEM Scholarship is intended to cover all associated costs with studying the programme that includes a monthly stipend and return flights from Brazil to the UK plus more. Please see terms and conditions for full details including eligible courses, entry requirements and the application process.

This scholarship is exclusively for women from Brazil but, of course, anyone with an interest in studying a Masters in a STEM subject may join this Masterclass series.
