Scholarship: Medieval and Renaissance Studies MA at UCL, Deadline 31st March 2022

The square half-mile around the UCL Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies must contain the highest concentration of manuscripts, books and seminars relating to the period 400 to 1600 anywhere in the Anglophone world. Situated halfway between the British Library and the School of Advanced Study, the Centre benefits from the richness of local resources and acts as a focal point for collaboration in the Bloomsbury area. It is one of the UK’s most prominent specialist centres for the study of the Medieval and Renaissance periods. 

Hosted by the History department but with teaching staff from across the university, we offer an MA degree in Medieval and Renaissance Studies. We also host a lively programme of seminars and events. This is an MA programme that offers excellent training in languages and palaeography, research-led courses, as well as supervision across a wide range of disciplines.

This year we have a particularly generous range of scholarships available. In addition to the programme-specific Chattaway scholarship, the UCL history department can distribute up to 6 Baxendale scholarships, which will cover the full home tuition fees for the year’s MA. All applicants to the MARS MA are eligible to be considered for these scholarships. Those who have been awarded a scholarship will be notified by the end of June.

The deadline for applications this year is 31st March 2022.
