Scholarships and Student Funding

LLC Masters Scholarships

The School will award 2 scholarships to outstanding students beginning their masters studies in the 2017-2018 academic year.

The School is pleased to invite applications from outstanding candidates for Masters scholarships for entry in 2017-2018. We will be awarding two Arthur Kitchin Scholarships. These exciting new schemes are designed to attract the best and brightest candidates to study in Edinburgh.


Each of the awards will cover:

  • Tuition fees for a maximum of one year at the Home/EU rate for the chosen programme of study (up to a maximum of £9,500). Successful Overseas applicants will be liable for the difference between the Home/EU and Overseas fees rates.

Applicants to two-year programmes or part-time Masters programmes including distance learning, are eligible to apply for the scholarships. However, they will be liable for any tuition fees in excess of £9,500

Please note any Additional Programme Costs are not included in this award and applicants will remain liable for this cost.

PhD students are not eligible to apply for this scheme.


Applicants  must have applied for a Masters programme of study within the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures before 11th April 2017. Their references must have been submitted by 25th April 2017.


The scholarships will be awarded on academic merit and the potential to excel at the chosen programme of study. Successful applicants will hold or be predicted to achieve a first class honours undergraduate degree (or overseas equivalent) in a relevant field or should be able to prove their academic merit through evidence of professional achievements, awards or publications relevant to their chosen programme of study.  Candidates in this latter category should note that a good first degree will still be required.


Applications for this scholarship are no longer being accepted for 2017-18 as the deadline of 2nd May 2017 has now passed.


All applicants will be notified of the outcome in June 2017.
