All candidates offered a place on the MSc in Archaeology programme will be considered for one of our departmental bursaries. All Home/EU and Overseas status applicants are eligible.
Five bursaries typically of £7,000 each are available for the academic year 2021-22.
To be eligible you need to apply to the MSc in Archaeology programme through the usual application system in the preceding November or January application round. There is no separate application form for the bursary. If you are offered a place on the programme you will be automatically considered for shortlisting for one of the bursaries.
Bursaries will be awarded to the strongest applicants who demonstrate:
- motivation for and understanding of the proposed area of study,
- sound reasons for applying to the School of Archaeology, the MSc in Archaeology and your chosen stream, and
- evidence that your academic ability and focus are suited to the demands and nature of the degree.
Applicants will be notified if they have been successful by the start of April. At this point an acceptance of the bursary is expected within a couple of weeks.
Successful applicants are asked to inform the School of Archaeology of any other offers of financial support for the purpose of their studies at Oxford. Adjustments to the value of the bursary may be made to take account of these.
