Scholarships for MSc Data Analytics

We are delighted to offer 3 prestigious scholarships towards tuition fees for the MSc Data Analytics 2017 entry (full-time only). Strathclyde's MSc Data Analytics is unique by bringing together essential skills from three departments, Management Science, Mathematics & Statistics, and Computer & Information Sciences, in order to address the needs of a fast-growing industry. The course focuses on the uses of data analytics techniques within business contexts, on making informed decisions about appropriate technology to extract knowledge from data and on understanding the theoretical principles by which such technology operates.

Applications are open to *all (UK/EU/international)* students, and each of these scholarships will be worth £9,500 (note this will cover the full tuition fee for the UK and EU students). The application deadline is 31 May 2017. Further details are provided below.

The applicants are expected to have (or be near completion of) at least a strong Upper Second Class Honours (undergraduate) degree or equivalent (a minimum 3.3 GPA in a 4.0 GPA system, or a minimum 85% average, or a minimum average of B+ in a letter system). Final year undergraduate students are eligible to apply.

Candidates interested in applying for these prestigious scholarships are required to provide a brief statement (up to 300 words) in their online applications which should clearly articulate their interest in the growing area of data science and analytics and their reasons for applying for the scholarship.

Funded students will be expected to complete the MSc course. The selected students will be announced by the end of May. The selection process will be based on your background (in particular the level of your degree) as well as the short statement you provide.
