DIT to welcome Brazilian students on Science Without Borders programmePosted: 30 March, 2015
Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) is looking forward to welcoming many new students from Brazil next September as part of the Science without Borders (Ciência sem Fronteiras)programme.
This exciting scholarship programme began in 2012, funded by the Brazilian government. The programme set out to place over 100,000 Brazilian students in overseas higher education institutions over a four year period. The main aim of the programme is to strengthen and expand science, technology, innovation and competitiveness in Brazil through the international mobility of their students and researchers. Up to 1,500 students are expected to study in Ireland, including 850 postgraduate research students who will undertake fully-funded PhD programmes.
Brazil’s major TV network recently visited Ireland to film a documentary about the experience of Brazilian students who are already here, and several of those interviewed are currently studying in DIT. To see the documentary (which is in Portuguese) please click here
