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. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Saturday 10 March 2018. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.
Is there a designated break between two semester in a full-time taught masters degree?
you can find all term dates here. You generally have 11 weeks of teaching in Term 1 and 2 both followed by 4 weeks of teaching free time. The third term involves exams only. Most courses also have a teaching free so-called reading week in week 6 of term 1 and 2. But this depends on the course.
I hope this makes sense.
Hi there, I applied for the MA in African Studies at your institution but I didn’t find on the website page of the course any information about scholarship or funding apart from the government loan. I was just wondering if there is any bursary or scolarship available for European students for that course. Thanks you very much for your help and for your time.
