Finance and funding

Details regarding the finance (fees and maintenance) and different sources of funding are available from the main University Postgraduate Admissions webpages. These include different sources of funding based on topic, background of the applicant and other factors. Consideration for some awards is automatic with your application, but some awards require you to apply specifically. Please check the fund details to ensure you apply correctly for any relevant sources of funding. The application deadline to be considered for these University administered funds is 1st December 2022.

Scandinavian Studies Studentship

In addition to these University sources of funding, the Managers of the Scandinavian Studies Fund are pleased to announce an MPhil Studentship in Scandinavian Studies for the academic year 2023-24. The award is for Home Fees and Maintenance for one student at the University of Cambridge starting an MPhil in 2023 who proposes to conduct research on any aspect of Scandinavian Studies

The award will consist of the university composition fee (tuition/College fees) at the Home rate plus the standard UKRI-level maintenance award, at the pro-rata rate for the period of the MPhil (9 months). The award will be made on the basis of the quality of the applicant's academic record, a research proposal, and any other indications of outstanding academic merit. Home and overseas applicants will be considered, but please note that the level of funding available is only at the Home rate.

There is no separate application form to apply for this award but applicants are asked to tick the box on their MPhil application form to say they wish to be considered for University funds. All applicants whose research falls into the relevant area for the award must submit their application for admission via the applicant portal by 1st December 2022.
