Grace Morris Learning Ladder MA Bursary in the Department of English & Humanities

The Department of English and Humanities is delighted to be able to offer an MA bursary as part of the Grace Morris Learning Ladder. The Grace Morris Learning Ladder is funded by a gift from a Birkbeck alumnus and named in memory of his mother, an English teacher. The MA bursary is for a full-time Master's degree in Medieval Literature and Culture, Modern and Contemporary Literature or Contemporary Literature and Culture. You must have been admitted to a place on one of the eligible degree schemes.

A one-off bursary of £7,950 is available towards tuition fees only. It will be allocated on two criteria: the successful applicant will be able to demonstrate both academic excellence, and financial need. Please see below for income criteria.
