The five SRU scholarships will be offered to applicants on the following MA degree:
The Sainsbury Research Unit is based in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts with its exceptional collections of world art spanning 5,000 years.

It has a specialist research library and excellent study facilities. As part of the School of World Art Studies and Museology and the newly-formed Sainsbury Institute for Art, the SRU contributes to a substantial and lively scholarly community in the Sainsbury Centre. In the latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) the School was rated first in the UK for internationally-recognised research. SRU faculty are currently engaged in major research projects.

The MA programme provides candidates with detailed knowledge of the visual arts, historical and contemporary, of Africa, Oceania and the Americas. Employing anthropological, archaeological and art-historical approaches, it is suitable as a stand-alone Masters or as a foundation for doctoral research. Emphasis is placed on small-group and individual tuition and the development of research skills. A strong museological emphasis makes this course appropriate for those interested in a career in museum curatorship, a pathway followed successfully by many alumni.
