What is the International Travel Scholarship?
In 2017, the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment launched the International Travel Scholarship in order to increase opportunities for our students to undertake study abroad programmes, internships and voluntary roles internationally. You can apply for a scholarship of up to £1,000 to support your activity.
International experiences not only support your personal development but also build your professional skills and improve your employability. By stepping out of your comfort zone, you’ll improve your job prospects while seeing the world.
Who can apply for the International Travel Scholarship?
Undergraduate students in their first or second year can apply for the scholarship.
If you chose to undertake postgraduate study with us, you can also apply for the scholarship whilst you are in the final year of your undergraduate degree.
You can apply now!
The International Travel Scholarship is offered on a yearly basis. In order to apply, you will need to submit an application form, and then attend a selection interview.
In the application, you will be asked to explain your travel plans and what you hope to achieve with the scholarship.
