Does your school have students with a keen interest in software, computing, telecommunications, cyber security, maths and ethics who are planning to start university to study Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths or Social Science either in autumn this year, or in autumn 2017 after a gap year? If so, we are delighted to offer them the chance of FREE places at the prestigious Cyber Security residential Glasgow Caledonian University – 4 to 22 July 2016 delivered by GCHQ and their training partner QA.
See the courses’ details, locations, dates, eligibility criteria and how to apply on our website at: http://www.arkwright.org.uk/exclusive/cyberfirst_advanced.htm . Students who are chosen to attend one of these courses could enhance their application for one of the new CyberFirst Student Bursaries to support their university studies – that’s £4,000 per year for every year of the student’s undergraduate course!
If your students think they’ve got what it takes to impress the experts at GCHQ and QA, they should check their eligibility on our webpage and apply NOW for one of the FREE places. Only 30 free places are being offered. The deadline for applications is Friday 17th June 2016 – so please can you spread the word about these courses rapidly.
Basic student eligibility requirements are: · Must be a UK national · Must be at least 18 years old on the day before their chosen course starts in July/August this year.
This opportunity is open to all final year students (who meet the eligibility criteria), not just Arkwright Scholars. Please see website for full details: http://www.arkwright.org.uk/exclusive/cyberfirst_advanced.htm
