MA Scholarships for International Students in History at University of Leeds, UK

Figures quoted reflect the 2011/12 UK / EU fee rates. 2012/13 fees for UK / EU students will probably be set in April and are likely to increase substantially due to changes in government fundingt. Thanks to a generous donation from the late Professor Maurice Beresford, we can offer three Beresford MA scholarships this year (offered for the last year in 2011/12):
The Beresford MA Scholarships are for full fees at the UK/EU rate plus a partial maintenance grant (pro rata over 2 years for part time students). International scholarship holders may opt to amalgamate the scholarship into one payment as a substantial contribution towards International fees or may choose to receive the UK/EU arrangement which would cover £4,200 of your fees and provide you with an additional funding as a maintenance contribution.
