The School of Historical Studies at Newcastle University is pleased to announce between 2 and 4 Masters Studentship Awards for postgraduate study in Newcastle's Wellcome Trust recognised MA programme in the History of Medicine.

The stipends for these awards will be £10,000 (including international fees) for non-EU students of outstanding merit.

The Centre is a partnership between the Universities of Newcastle and Durham, and is supported by the Wellcome Trust.


  • Applications for the studentship are invited from highly motivated graduates from various backgrounds including the Humanities and Social Sciences (e.g. History, Classics, Philosophy, Literature, Religious Studies, Archaeology, Psychology, Sciences, Sociology etc.).
  • Applicants require a good (or predicted) undergraduate degree result (1st or high 2:1) in such a subject.
  • Candidates with a medical background are also encouraged to apply, and the studentship is open to current stage 4 Newcastle medical students who have opted to take the MA in the History of Medicine as an intercalated degree after stage 4 MBBS.
  • Applications from overseas candidates with equivalent qualifications are also very welcome.

    In order to be considered for this competition, applicants must first have secured a place in the programme by completing and submitting the University's online postgraduate application form for the MA in the History of Medicine and receiving written confirmation of acceptance to the programme.
