Scholarships and Student Funding

LLC Masters Scholarships

The School will award 2 scholarships to outstanding students beginning their masters studies in the 2018-2019 academic year.

The School is pleased to invite applications from outstanding candidates for Masters scholarships for entry in 2018-2019. 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 £10,100). Successful Overseas applicants will be liable for the difference between the Home/EU and Overseas fees rates.

Applicants to two-year full-time programmes or two-year part-time Masters programmes, are eligible to apply for the scholarships. However, they will be liable for any tuition fees in excess of £10,100

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 an on campus Masters programme of study within the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures before 10th April 2018. Their references must have been submitted by 24th April 2018.


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.


Information on how to apply will follow shortly - the closing date will be 1 May 2018.


All applicants will be notified of the outcome by the end of May 2018.
