Coordinated by the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics, the University of Leeds has been awarded OfS scholarships in partnership with industry, for admission to three of our Data Science related MSc programmes in September 2024:

Each scholarship is worth £10,000 which can be put towards course costs or living costs incurred while studying.


To be eligible for scholarship funding students must meet the nationality or residency status criteria to qualify for the postgraduate masters’ loan.

The OfS scholarships aim to increase the diversity of students studying AI and data science postgraduate conversion courses. To be eligible for an OfS award, students must be from at least one of the following underrepresented groups, with priority being given to the first four groups:

  1. women
  2. black students
  3. students registered disabled

  5. care experienced students
  6. estranged students
