A small number of bursaries, worth between £1,000 and £4,000, will be provided by the School of Physical Sciences for the MSc in Mathematical Sciences in 2020/21.

These will be awarded on a competitive basis to the strongest applicants, and paid as a reduction in fees. There is no special application procedure and no restriction on nationality. All applicants who apply for the MSc programme before 5pm on Friday 19th June 2020 will be considered for a bursary.
