Students arrive from Brazil

Have your say

York University has welcomed its first students from Brazil who are taking part in a new scholarship programme.

The Science without Borders scheme enables Brazilian students to receive scholarships for one-year “study abroad” programmes at selected UK universities.

The first nine students to arrive at York are undergraduates studying with the departments of biology and chemistry.

They come from several Brazilian universities, including the University of São Paulo.

York already has strong research ties with Brazilian institutions.
