The following provision is available:
For Postgraduate students in all Faculties or Departments
Researcher Development Language Training (RDLT) Bursary
Please read the following carefully before applying:
Bursaries will only be awarded for CULP courses or external provision starting, or due to start in Michaelmas term (Cycle 1), and Lent / Easter terms (Cycle 2).
Please do not apply for a bursary in Cycle 2 if you started your language training in Michaelmas term.
Applicants will need to demonstrate how the language training proposed will benefit their research and/or career development.
To apply for a RDLT bursary please complete the online application form for the relevant cycle below.
Any bursary awarded must be used in the academic year in which it is awarded. It cannot be transferred to the next academic year if it cannot be used.
Read the questions checklist to successfully complete your application.
N.B. The Researcher Development Language Training Bursary Scheme is competitive, with a fixed annual pot of funding. Not all applications will therefore be successful. Priority will be given to those applicants who evidence their requirement for language training and the benefits they will derive from it.
For Postgraduate Students in Science-based disciplines
Postgraduate Students may also be able to request a financial contribution towards language study from their College. Please note that any such contribution will be at the discretion of the College concerned. You should also enquire if there is any additional financial support available from your Faculty/Department. The application form asks you to include an indication of the financial support you expect to obtain from other sources so please enquire before applying to this scheme.
Please note that bursary applications to cover funding for courses taken in previous academic years will not be considered. For any further clarification, please contact Jocelyn Wyburd: email@example.com.
