The ALC MA bursaries are open to both Home/EU and Overseas students, and are awarded for one year of full-time study or pro rata for two years part-time study.

Overseas scholarships
These dedicated Overseas MA scholarships, also payable against fees bursaries, are only eligible to Overseas applicants.

How to apply
Except where indicated, all the awards use the same application process. Please state clearly which Award you are applying to on the funding application form - NB you can apply for both AHRC studentships (if your subject area is eligible) and SALC Masters Bursaries.

The application process is in two parts:
To apply for a master’s award you must first complete the University of Manchester standard postgraduate admissions application form by Friday 15 February 2013. Your referees will also need to submit your references directly to the School by this date.
You also need to submit the funding application, complete with form, Case for Support and references by 5pm, 1 March 2013. This funding application form should be submitted via email to or via post to Postgraduate Taught Office, School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, S3.9 Samuel Alexander Building, Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9PL.

Case for support
As part of your Funding Application, you need to submit a 500-word case for support. Guidance for this can found below, within the Guide for Applicants to AHRC BGP.

You should inform your referees that you are applying for funding. References that do not provide a detailed appraisal of your academic development and suitability for your proposed programme of study, but are simply a general statement of support, may disadvantage even the strongest applicant.

Access to Postgraduate Education Bursaries
These are bursaries of £1000 each to facilitate access to postgraduate study for students who would not otherwise be able to meet the cost: for example, students whose family responsibilities limit their ability to combine paid work with study. The bursaries are open both to those who hold offers to start a taught postgraduate programme in September 2013, and to current part-time students who would otherwise have difficulty in completing their programme.

How to apply
Further information on the application process for these Bursaries will be available on the official website in due course.
