As we celebrate British Science Week in March each year, we have selected three examples of international undergraduate STEM scholarships from UK universities.
The popular abbreviation STEM refers to four areas of high demand both academically and professionally around the world: science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Within these four disciplines, there are various disciplines and specializations in the field of engineering from information technology, data science, artificial intelligence, statistics, biotechnology and many more.
STEM Scholarship in the UK
As they increase, it is very common for universities around the world to offer scholarships specifically for their STEM courses. And the UK is no exception! Here are three examples of UK universities that offer scholarships for STEM degrees.
1. University of Strathclyde
The Faculty of Science at the University of Strathclyde, located in Glasgow, Scotland, offers scholarships specifically for international students. Discounts on tuition fees range from £3,000 to 5,000 and are automatically offered to students pursuing college degrees with excellent academic ability.
Since they operate automatically, there is no need to apply for a separate scholarship. The University also recommends applying as soon as possible as they are competitive and applications will be submitted as they come with the right requirements.
Don’t stop now…there is more after Publicity 😉
