Funding for Master's Programmes

The following opportunities are on offer to candidates who apply for Masters programmes within the field of Political, Social and International Studies.


The Faculty of the 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 2016/17. For UK residents awards consist of fees (£7,150) and a tax-free maintenance grant (equivalent to Research Councils UK RPM rates which in 2015/16 was £9,681. The 2016/17 figure will be announced soon shortly) and for EU residents awards are on a fees only basis (£7,150). 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 for a place on a Master's programme in the Faculty by 15 March 2016 and hold an offer by 31 March 2016, therefore early applications are recommended. This funding is part of the University’s commitment to developing and enhancing postgraduate education in all disciplines of the Arts and Humanities.

In order to be considered for any of these awards, applicants should submit their application for an MA or MRes course no later than 31 March 2016.  Please note that in order to be considered for a scholarship, applicants do not need to submit a separate application as the scholarships will be awarded on academic merit and the overall strength of the application.
