Partnership Studentships

As a result of our collaborative links with numerous local museums and galleries, we are proud to offer the following partnership studentships for 2017/18:

For all full-time MA in History of Art (taught) and pathway degree applicants

  • Friends of York Art Gallery

    This year-long studentship provides the successful applicant with a partial fee waiver (£5,000), and an opportunity to undertake a volunteer placement at the gallery.

For all full-time Home MA in History of Art (taught) and pathway degree applicants

  • The Worshipful Company of Arts Scholars

    Two studentships are available.  Each studentship provides the successful applicant with a partial fee waiver (£5,000), and an opportunity to receive mentoring and training from members of the Company of Arts Scholars.

For all full-time and part-time MA in History of Art (taught) and pathway degree applicants

  • The Hepworth Wakefield
  • Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art
  • V&A (the competition for 2017/18 will open in the autumn)
  • Yorkshire Sculpture Park

    These shorter studentships provide the successful applicant with a stipend of £1500 and the opportunity to undertake a volunteer placement at the partner institution.  These placements will run in May and June, after the end of the taught component of the MA and before research for the dissertation begins in earnest.

General Guidance

  • The deadline for applications is 12 noon (BST) on Monday 12 June 2017.
  • You may apply for as many opportunities as you are eligible for, but you must be available for interview if specified. Please refer to each opportunity for guidance.
  • Details about how to apply for each studentship can be found on the individual partnership pages. Please read these pages carefully before you apply and remember to tailor your application to each individual institution.
  • A partnership studentship can be held alongside other University of York fee waivers, but the total sum awarded will be capped at the value of your 2017/18 tuition fee.
  • Please be aware that attendance in person at interview(s) is expected and may necessitate travel at your own cost.  If you are not in the UK at the time of the interviews it may be possible to arrange a Skype appointment.
