The Department of Mathematics Scholarship for the MSc in Statistics
The Department of Mathematics is funding two bursaries each worth £10,000 which will directly contribute towards the tuition fees of the successful recipients. If the successful recipient is “Islands/Overseas” fee paying status (i.e. not Home/EU) then they must pay the remaining tuition fee balance to study here.

They will be reserved for candidates who show a desire and ability to continue into a postgraduate research degree after completing their MSc.
