We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.
We will hold many more of these virtual open day events over the coming months so please check www.pg.bham.ac.uk now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. Our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Wednesday 23 November 2016. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.
Thank you Roxanne, everyone, for a helpful webcast
You’re welcome – glad we could help!
Question for Dr. Hempel or any member of the team: any research grants available to American PhD students (distance program) through the AHRC? Outher government funds? Thank you
I’m afraid that AHRC funding is only available for campus-based study, but the College of Arts and Law does offer distance learning research bursaries. Applications are now closed for 2016 entry, but we hope to offer them again for 2017 entry. Many schemes are focused on campus-based study, but you can also take a look at our postgraduate funding database to explore other opportunities that may be available – you can filter by level of study, subject and nationality to get a specific list of available opportunities. Again, many schemes will have already closed for this year, but past schemes still still be available to view so you can get a sense of what is usually offered.
I hope that helps.
hello, I have received a conditional offer I am a valedictorian and have been granted a full scholarship yet my overall mark is a bit under the required one. Please note that my mark is the highest in my department.
Congratulations on your scholarship. Given the nature of your question being rather technical I suggest you drop a line to email@example.com and we will get back to you.
Thanks for checking in!
Hello. I applied for a College of Arts and Law Masters Scholarship. When am I likely to hear if I have received any funding? I have already accepted a place to do an MA by Research. Thanks.
Thanks for getting in touch. The letters with the results for this competition are going out so I advise you keep a close eye on your inbox. While I wish you well it is worth bearing in mind that as of next year the government has just introduced a loan scheme for Masters programs.
