Science Without Borders

Durham University is one of 70 UK universities participating in the Science without Borders Programme. This scheme awards scholarships to outstanding Brazilian scientists and students for one-year study abroad programmes, full PhDs, Sandwich PhDs and exchange at postdoctoral research level.

The Pro Vice Chancellor and Head of the Faculty of Science, Professor Patrick Hussey, visited Brazil in June 2012 with a delegation of heads of science departments to strengthen links with Brazilian universities.

Further information, including details of how to apply, is available on the Science without Borders UK website. Science without Borders is administered in Brazil by CAPES and CNPq. Please visit their website for full details.
