9 October 2019
Highest ever number of School postgraduates benefits from merit-based University scheme
Twenty students undertaking the master’s degree programmes in Applied Linguistics, Creative Writing, English Literature and Forensic Linguistics have been awarded the prized Master’s Excellence Scholarships this academic year.
Head of the School of English, Communication and Philosophy Professor Martin Willis said: “The School is delighted that the scheme will benefit so many students in this year’s competition. Such an award will make a real difference to students undertaking their Masters. It’s rewarding to see our highest numbers yet.”
Once again this year the University has committed to invest up to a total of £500,000 in this high value competitive scholarship scheme to support UK and EU students undertaking an eligible master’s programme.
The Scholarships are each worth a minimum of £3,000 and are awarded in the form of a tuition fee discount.
“This scholarship package will give high-calibre students the opportunity to study at a world-leading, research-intensive university and help ease the associated financial burdens” said Vice Chancellor Professor Colin Riordan.
