Paul asked:

Another question. Will there be opportunities for Masters students to get paid work at the University I’m mainly thinking of whether masters students are allowed to lead Undergraduate seminars? Thanks again.

Ellie replied:

Hi Paul,

Generally Masters students do not lead undergraduate seminars, this would be PhD students. However, in some circumstances there will be opportunities for Masters students to get involved with teaching. There are also a lot of other paid work opportunities on campus for postgraduates, like being a Student Mentor or Postgraduate Ambassador. Our working alongside study and earning while you learn pages will provide more details about work opportunities you will have during your Masters.

Best wishes,

Ellie

Do you know when we will get replies to the School of History MA Scholarships at all?
