Financial Support

In addition to AHRC funding for Masters students, we offer several bursaries for applicants to our MA and MSc programmes. We also award generous book allowances to students who are successful in their applications for AHRC funding.

These bursaries are open to applicants for any of our MA and MSc programmes; priority will be given to those intending to continue to doctoral research.
