The School of Modern Languages and Cultures (SMLC) will award two Master's scholarships to outstanding applicants wishing to commence full-time study on of our one-year taught master's in Autumn 2024:
The scholarships are intended to facilitate access to Master's level study in the School of Modern Languages and Cultures for academically gifted students who may otherwise experience difficulty in progressing to postgraduate study.
The scholarship will consist of a fee waiver (for applicants with Home fees status) or a fee subsidy (for applicants with International fees status) for a maximum value equal to the Postgraduate Taught fees. For the successful candidates, the award will be conditional on acceptance of a place of study. The award will be arranged directly with the University's Student Finances service. If the fee for the course is less (e.g. because the student qualifies for a Warwick alumni discount), the level of the scholarship will be adjusted accordingly.

Please note:

  • The scholarships are for full-time study only.
  • Students domiciled in the UK as well as international students are eligible to apply. However, the scholarships are capped (as above) at home fees level for 2024 entry. If you have questions about your fees status, please follow this link.
  • The scholarships cannot be deferred, or transferred to another course outside the School of Modern Languages & Cultures.
  • You must be self-funding - see below *
  • You must have (or be expected to attain) a First or good 2.i (or international equivalent) for your undergraduate degree.
  • Applications are welcomed from students who consider Master's study as a stepping-stone towards doctoral study, though this is not a prerequisite.
  • The School of Modern Languages & Cultures values equality, diversity and inclusion. Applications are welcomed from underrepresented and/or minority groups.If you are returning to study after a break (of more than 2 years) and/or have relevant professional experience, then please clarify this in your personal statement (for the course application) and/or motivational statement.

* Self-funding status: You are considered to be a self-funded student if you are financing your studies with your own savings or if you are receiving financial assistance from family or friends. If you take out a student loan to cover the cost of your studies, you are also considered to be self-funded. You are not self-funded if your fees are being paid by a third party (other than family and friends) or if you are in receipt of a study grant or scholarship external to the University or through another Warwick-based scheme (other than an alumni discount).
