The UK currently holds the exclusive position of being the number one destination for “Becas Chile” scholarship holders.
Since 2009, the Chilean government, through the National Commission for Science and Technology (CONICYT), has financed 3,963 Masters degrees abroad and 3,418 PhD international programmes. Universities from the UK have been able to secure 36% of these Master degrees and 26% of PhD programmes.
The trend of choosing the UK as destination country to pursue further education abroad has been favourable for the UK. Being able to continue to advance this trend is of great importance for the British Council in Chile.
Priorities for Chile
During the last months of 2017 CONICYT announced strategic country priorities for 2017 and 2018 for its research efforts and to support advanced human capital development. The priorities declared were the following:
- Water resources
- Resilience towards natural disasters
- Food & Health
- Education and social development
Considering the above, British Council will host this seminar to showcase specific research that has been developed by UK universities or research groups in the aforementioned priority areas as well as postgraduate programmes in these areas.
The Seminar is focused towards graduate students who would like to purse a postgraduate degree (Masters or PhD) in the priority areas that have been established by CONICYT.
- This is a FREE of charge Seminar.
- This event will be in English and no translation will be provided
