Applying to York for postgraduate study couldn't be simpler - there is an on-line application system that allows you to do anything from register an informal interest in a programme or research topic to submitting a full application.
Whatever stage you're at, please don't hesitate to contact the Director of Studies for the Masters programme. The University pages dedicated to Postgraduate study provide a wealth of information about the research environment and community that you will become part of.
All candidates applying to the Department for Masters programmes will be considered for Departmental bursaries. You should apply for a place on your chosen programme through the usual application system, but you do need to state on your application that you wish to be considered for Departmental bursaries.
For research programmes, you must submit your research proposal with your application. We often recommend that you seek advice from your potential supervisor (i.e. the member of staff who shares your research interests).
We award the scholarships/bursaries on the basis of academic merit and you will be asked to upload a transcript (this is an official document from the University and includes marks from all years of study).
If you have not completed your current degree you will need to upload an interim transcript which will present your marks so far. You can obtain these from your University Examinations Office (If you are a York student, please see this page on Transcripts ). You can also encourage your referees to include a comment about your expected degree result.
If you are applying as a mature student, or are entering Higher Education through a different route, please give details of your relevant experience and your goals, as well as any relevant academic and/or professional qualifications.
We will notify successful candidates of the outcome of funding awards in July.
