If you are an outstanding graduate with a passion for computing, you could be awarded a £28,000 - that is £2,000 more than a bursary scholarship from BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, while you train to teach.
You will also enjoy a number of additional benefits, including free BCS membership for a year, training workshops, and career mentoring opportunities in partnership with schools, universities and world-renowned employers.
To be considered for a BCS scholarship you’ll need to have a minimum of a 2:2, or be likely to achieve a 2:2, preferably in computer science or maths.
If you don’t have a degree in either of these subjects, you’ll need to:
- undertake a computing subject knowledge enhancement course, or
- have a degree with an extensive amount of computing content – for example, a STEM degree
- have a degree as well as significant professional experience as part of the computing industry
You can find out more about eligibility on the BCS website.
