The Data Lab students will join the most extensive and innovative scholarship programme in Scotland. Following two successful years, The Data Lab will be expanding their MSc scholarship programme to 130 students for 2017/18.
The third cohort of MSc programmes include collaborations with 11 universities from across Scotland including Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling and the West of Scotland.
Students will have the opportunity to complete a paid three-month industrial placement for their dissertation project. Through these projects, students get the chance to apply their learnt skills to life problems and get familiar with the working world.
As part of The Data Lab MSc, student’s receive additional technical and ‘business-ready’ skills training and we also run a year-long data competition for all students. This comprises a series of hackathons that allows students to apply their data science skills using real datasets from Scottish organisation.
If you are a Scottish or EU student, you will be eligible to have your tuition fees paid in full through this scheme.
