About the bursary

The University of Bradford is offering a number of scholarships to students coming to study the MSC Cyber Security Course. These will take the form of a fee waiver, and there are 3 full and 1 part fee waivers offered to students. 

In order to apply for this award you must demonstrate a clear and credible intention to become a cyber security professional in the UK, and how the bursary materially assists achieve that.

Please note that bursary allocation preference guidance will:

  • Take into account the strength of the original application for those accepted onto the course.
     
  • Give additional scoring weighting to women applying for the programme. This is in line with the Scheme focus of helping address underrepresentation of women in the cyber security profession.
