Science Without Borders
Science Without Borders
The Brazilian scientific mobility programme
Swansea University is delighted to be one of a select group of top British universities participating in the Science Without Borders mobility programme.
Science Without Borders is a Brazilian Government scholarship programme which aims to send 100,000 Brazilian students and researchers on undergraduate sandwich courses, PhD sandwich courses and full PhD programmes at universities across the world.
The scheme is being administered by CAPES and CNPq on behalf of the Brazilian government, and supported in the UK by Universities UK.
An industrial placement or research project is a three month component of the Science Without Borders undergraduate sandwich course.
At Swansea University, students will have the opportunity to undertake a supervised lab-based or research project relevant to their course, for example, participating in a research group's activities or undertaking a project to be agreed and supervised by an academic staff member. There may also be the opportunity to undertake an industrial placement with a company external to the university. As part of this, Swansea University is delighted to be working with the Harris Pye Group to develop worldwide industrial placement opportunities for Engineering undergraduate participants in Science Without Borders.
