Masters training

The Combined Universities in Cornwall (CUC) Research Programme supported the training of 780 masters students. These were funded by the European Social Fund (ESF), under its Convergence funding for Cornwall.

Support was aimed at newly established masters courses and those courses within the CUC partnership which promoted interaction with businesses; for example where students undertook collaborative masters research in conjunction with a business partner.

A number of ESF scholarships weare available to support EU/UK postgraduate students who wished to undertake their masters studies in Cornwall on selected courses:-
