University of Warwick has launched 100 awards of £5000 per student for Taught Masters students commencing their studies in 2016-17. The scholarships worth £500,000 will be available to eligible Home/EU students from under-represented groups who wish to start a taught masters course in 2016-17. The award of £5,000 will be deducted from the applicants tuition fee and presents an opportunity for 2016/17 entrants to obtain funding alongside a postgraduate loan. The competition will be open to all disciplines and all departments for applicants who meet the eligibility criteria. Awards will be made on the basis of merit against the criteria rather than quotas set for departments or faculties.
The deadline for applications will be Thursday 21st July.
The University offers three taught MAs in Ancient Visual and Material Culture which share a common core subject and allow the student to focus on his/her particular interests:
This involves two months’ study in Rome with a detailed programme of visits and seminars, as well as core and optional modules studied in Warwick.
