For 2013, Music is able to submit nominations to an open competition across all the University’s Block Grant Partnership (BGP) professional preparation subjects for the award of two AHRC master’s studentships through the AHRC’s Professional Preparation scheme. This scheme supports students undertaking a Postgraduate Diploma or Master’s course that focuses on developing high level skills and competencies for professional practice.

Other EU students are eligible for a fees-only award.Â To see if you would be eligible for a full or fees only award, please refer to the AHRC’s residency eligibility criteria in Annex A of the AHRC Studentship Funding Guide(PDF: 500KB).
