The School will award 4 scholarships to outstanding students beginning their masters studies in the 2019-2020 academic year.
The School is pleased to invite applications from outstanding candidates for Masters scholarships for entry in 2019-2020. We will be awarding four Arthur Kitchin Scholarships. These exciting new schemes are designed to attract the best and brightest candidates to study in Edinburgh.
Each of the awards will cover:
- Tuition fees for a maximum of one year at the Home/EU rate for the chosen programme of study (up to a maximum of £10,700). Successful Overseas applicants will be liable for the difference between the Home/EU and Overseas fees rates.
Applicants to two-year full-time programmes or two-year part-time Masters programmes, are eligible to apply for the scholarships. However, they will be liable for any tuition fees in excess of £10,700
PhD students are not eligible to apply for this scheme.
Applicants must have applied for an on campus Masters programme of study within the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures before 10th April 2019. Their references must have been submitted by 24th April 2019.
The scholarships will be awarded on academic merit and the potential to excel at the chosen programme of study. Successful applicants will hold or be predicted to achieve a first class honours undergraduate degree (or overseas equivalent) in a relevant field or should be able to prove their academic merit through evidence of professional achievements, awards or publications relevant to their chosen programme of study. Candidates in this latter category should note that a good first degree will still be required.
Information on how to apply will follow shortly.
The deadline for applications is 1 May 2019.
All applicants will be notified of the outcome in June 2019.
