Greetings

On 8 December 2015, 3:30 - 5 pm in the Wren Library at the Lincoln Cathedral, we are having a MA Open Day in the School of History and Heritage.

 If you are contemplating doing a MA or postgraduate diploma in History or Heritage at the University of Lincoln, learn about our programmes, meet the tutors, see some of the source materials with which you could work, and enjoy some tea/coffee and cake!  We have an excellent collection of rare books in the early modern history of science and medicine in the Wren Library, as well as several staff with whom to study. The University has on site the Media Archive of Central England for those interested in 20th century history of science and technology, and the International Bomber Command Centre Archives are nearby.  For those interested in connections between science and literature, Lincoln also has the Tennyson Archive.

We are also pleased to be able to offer up to three bursaries (scholarships), by competition, for those who wish to undertake one of the MA degree programmes offered by the School of History and Heritage (MA Conservation of Historic Objects, MA Historical Studies, MA Medieval Studies).  The bursaries will cover tution fees up to 4970. There is no allocation per programme, and bursaries will be awarded to the candidates who submit the best applications. Students will be required to have applied for their MA programme of choice before submitting an application. Those who win a bursary who elect to take a programme over two years (2016-17, 2017-18) will receive half the bursary in each year, but the amount received will not rise in the second year (and so may not cover the full cost of tuition if fees rise in 2017-18).

An application form will be available in January 2016.  The deadline for applications will be 25 March 2016<x-apple-data-detectors://1>, and decisions will be made promptly, certainly before the end of April. Successful applicants will be expected to confirm that they accept both their place on a programme and the bursary shortly after that. In the event that a candidate does not accept the bursary, it may be offered to another applicant who has accepted a place.


To register for the Open Day, please email Dr Anna Marie Roos, Reader, History, University of Lincoln ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>).
