Faculty of Arts and Humanities Studentships
The Faculty of Arts and Humanities at the University of East Anglia is pleased to announce the availability of 4 Home/EU MA funded studentships for entry in 2015/16. For UK residents awards consist of fees (£7,000) and a tax-free maintenance grant (equivalent to AHRC RPM rates which is currently £9,681) and for EU residents awards are on a fees only basis (£7,000). All applicants will be assessed on the merit of their full application (which includes one academic reference). Applicants wishing to be considered for these studentships should apply by 1 March 2015 and hold an offer by 11 March 2015, therefore early applications are recommended. This funding is part of the University's dedication to developing and enhancing postgraduate education in all disciplines of the Arts and Humanities.
