About the Award

The MSc Data Science conversion course at Coventry University is part of the #JoinYourAIFuture programme, funded by the Office for Students. #JoinYourAIFuture is a national recruitment campaign to help address the shortage of AI and data specialists in the UK. An important aim of the campaign is to increase the number of people from underrepresented groups in the AI and data science fields, and to encourage graduates from diverse backgrounds to consider a future in these occupations.


The Office for Students has made 1,000 scholarships available to help achieve this aim and applicants to this course may apply for a scholarship of £10,000 to help with the cost of course fees, and associated costs such as childcare and transport. Applications for scholarships will initially be reviewed using a points-based system. Priority for these awards will be given to applicants in the following categories:

  • Female students
  • Black students (as defined by HESA codes: 21; 22; 29; 41; 42)
  • Disabled students

Consideration will also be given to applicants who meet other underrepresented criteria in the following secondary categories:

  • Students from POLAR Q1 and Q2
  • Care experienced students
  • Estranged students
  • Gypsy, Roma, Traveller students
  • Refugees
  • Children from military families, veterans and partners of military personnel.
