The Applied Computing Department of The University of Buckingham is committed to inspiring more young women to pursue careers in the Computer Science sector.
According to UCAS, women are now 35% more likely to go to university than men. However, fewer than 20% of these women are likely to apply to study subjects categorised as “Mathematical and Computing Sciences” by Times Higher Education.
The University of Buckingham wants to change that and encourage females to consider studying Computing undergraduate degree programmes with us. One way they endeavouring to achieve this is by offering female applicants a Diversity in Computing Scholarship or Bursary, often alongside other sources of funding which are available to everyone. The University of Buckingham are able to do this thanks to the generosity of alumnus Mr Weiyou Cui whose generous donation to the University is specifically for supporting female students who are studying Computing at The University of Buckingham.
