Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine

Two bursaries available for MSc study, beginning September 2014

The Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM) offers two bursaries (small grants) of £5000 each towards tuition for its MSc (taught Masters) programmes, including study in the medical humanities and science communication. The awards are aimed at highly motivated students seeking to proceed to PhD study at CHSTM.

The scheme is open to all suitably qualified UK and international candidates, and offered for either full-time or part-time study starting in September 2014. The award of £5000 covers the majority of the course fees for UK and EU students (£6300 full-time), or may be awarded as a contribution to the international fee (£18000 full-time). It does not include a stipend or support for accommodation.

Please note that the scheme is intended for students with a strong commitment to proceeding through the MSc to PhD research. (For this reason, it is not open to medical students taking the MSc as an intercalation, or to other students with a pre-planned non-PhD study route.)

The qualification requirements are higher than for acceptance on the programme overall. We will consider all bursary applicants with a First-class undergraduate degree or international equivalent (see https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/grade-comparison-of-overseas-qualifications), but will also consider other applicants who can demonstrate strong aptitude for historical or related work through their study backgrounds or professional experience.

For all details of our MSc programme, see the postgraduate taught pages at this site.

The deadline for applications is Monday 31 March 2014.

For further particulars and to make an application, please contact the MSc programme director as indicated on our contacts page.
