The Department of Sociology at the University of York is ranked 1st in the UK for research quality by the recent major Research Excellence Framework review (REF 2014).
With impressive credentials and a supportive atmosphere, our innovative Department is driven by excellence in both research and teaching.
We welcome enquiries and applications from prospective Masters students wishing to apply for a Chevening Scholarship.
Chevening Scholarships provide one year of fully-funded postgraduate taught study in the UK (i.e. a Masters programme). They are awarded to future leaders by British Embassies and High Commissions around the world. More information about eligible countries, selection criteria, and the application process is available as www.chevening.org.
We can support general applications to Chevening in a variety of ways, listed below.
In addition, we would welcome applications for the exciting new Chevening Partnership Scholarship, which is specifically for Chinese students applying for one of 10 named Masters degrees at York, including the MA in Culture, Society and Globalisation, offered in Sociology.

DEADLINE for applications for study in 2017-18: 8th November 2016
Please note: you do not require an offer letter from us by 8 November in order to apply for a Chevening scholarship. You just need evidence that you have submitted an application to us. However, applicants who already have an offer letter will be in a stronger position to be shortlisted by Chevening.
