Two £5000 student tuition bursaries available for MSc study in HSTM, 2013-2014

CHSTM is offering two £5000 taught masters (MSc) student bursary awards for suitably qualified candidates accepted for our full-time or part-time postgraduate taught MSc programme whose intentions are to subsequently pursue a PhD. The awards, which are tenable from September 2013, will cover the entire tuition fee for UK or European Union students, or partial support for students paying the higher international rate, who are equally eligible to apply. They do not include a stipend or support for accommodation.

CHSTM is one of the world’s leading centres for history of science, technology and medicine and their relations with society, with a growing focus on science communication. Our innovative MSc programme aims to provide a comprehensive historical introduction to nineteenth- and twentieth-century science, technology and medicine in their wider social, economic, cultural and political contexts, including science communication and the relationship between science and the public. It also offers systematic training in historical approaches to a wide variety of scientific, technical and medical knowledge and practices. We have a lively postgraduate community of Masters and PhD students, and a large and successful group of postdoctoral researchers. Our study facilities are excellent, and we have an outstanding track record of progression from Masters to PhD, and from doctoral to postdoctoral study. We pride ourselves on the interdisciplinary nature of our programmes, and cater for students with a science background as well as those arriving with a humanities or social science undergraduate degree. We offer a range of MScs including the History of Science, Technology and Medicine; Medical Humanities; and Science Communication. Our Research Methods in History of Science, Technology and Medicine degree is an approved pathway to apply for ESRC-sponsored PhD study.

The deadline for applications for these funds is 8 April. Application forms and further particulars for the bursary awards and for graduate study are obtainable from Dr David Kirby, MSc Director, Centre for the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine, University of Manchester, Manchester M13 9PL, [email protected]; tel +44-161-275-5837
