Fee rates for courses offered by the Faculty of Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics have been the subject of a review and in many cases have been increased significantly. This affects both Home/EU and Overseas rates. For the latest information on fees charged by the University please visit the Fees and Funding page:

Basant Kumar and Sarala Birla Graduate Studentship

Funding for one three-year graduate studentship has been donated by Birla International Limited.  The Scholarship provides in full the tuition and college fee, and a maintenance grant commensurate to the national minimum doctoral stipend of the UK Research Councils, for three years. It is open to students of all nationalities.

The Scholarship is available for entry in 2014.

College Scholarships

Most colleges offer their own bursaries or partial scholarships, available to applicants in a number of disciplines.  These are listed in the funding search tool.  In some cases, you must name the relevant college as your first choice on your application in order to be eligible for the bursary or scholarship.  Of particular interest for Linguistics is the Paula Soans O'Brian scholarship being offered by St Cross College.

In some years, the Faculty is able to offer joint scholarships with certain colleges.  In years in which these scholarships are available, information on how to apply will be provided on this website.

The Philological Society offers a Masters Bursary Scheme for study in linguistics or philology for which MPhil and MSt applicants may be eligible.  See the website of the Philological Society for more details.
