Ireland Fourth in the World for Science without Borders programme
Posted on 28 November 2014
Ireland has once again managed to secure a top spot in the Science without Borders (SwB) programme. The programme, run by the Brazilian government, provides funding for students in mostly STEM fields for research at a foreign university. Ireland ranks fourth in the world for student preferences in 2014. This is a strong improvement on 2013, when Ireland was ranked seventh.
The highly competitive programme sends Brazilian undergraduate students to participating universities around the world to learn at top-class higher education institutes. Trinity College Dublin has traditionally been one of the top choices for Brazilian students considering Ireland as a destination for SwB. With its stellar academic reputation world-wide, and its unrivalled location in the heart of one of Europe’s friendliest cities, Trinity expects to remain similarly placed after SwB applications close at the end of 2014.
Trinity is one of Europe's top research universities and offers doctoral training in many aspects of science, including physics, nanosciences, engineering, computer science, natural sciences, chemistry, biomedical sciences and mathematics.
