Total scholarships and discounts awarded will be capped at the full tuition fee, and no part of this award is redeemable for cash or other services at Lancaster University.


Hoping to progress to PhD?

This MSc programme is eligible for ESRC 1+3 funding, which means that it can serve as the first year of a four-year programme towards PhD. After that year holders of this scholarship continue their studies with a further three years of supervised research to complete their PhD.

To apply for these ESRC scholarships you must be a UK or EU student, and your application must be submitted to us well in advance of the 12 March deadline.
