The University of Leicester School of Museum Studies offers a vibrant and dynamic research environment for postgraduate study. The last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) in December 2008 found that the School has the highest-proportion of world-leading rated research in any subject in any UK university. In its forty year history, the School of Museum Studies – the only department in the country solely devoted to the study of museums and galleries – has played an influential role in the re-invention of museum theory and practice.

By nurturing creative and critical professionals who have transformed organisations and professional practice throughout the world; by producing original, rigorous, and internationally influential research; and by working collaboratively on a range of pioneering initiatives, the School has made a significant and sustained contribution to the international cultural sector and the field of museum studies internationally.

In 2013, the School of Chemistry will celebrate the 300th anniversary of the first chair in Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh. As part of these celebrations the School has introduced the Tercentenary International Scholarships Scheme.

The Tercentenary International Masters Scholarships Scheme helps outstanding postgraduate taught masters students from outside the United Kingdom and European Community to study in the School of Chemistry by providing for some of the costs of their training.

The scholarships are offered to overseas applicants starting a full-time MSc programme in the School of Chemistry in September 2011 on either the:

  • MSc in Medicinal & Biological Chemistry
  • MSc in Materials Chemistry

The School of Informatics will offer up to 10 Master’s scholarships for the 2011-2012 academic session. Each will have a value of £1,000 and will be tenable for one academic year.


The scholarships will be awarded to international (non-EU) students who are accepted for admission on a full-time basis for an eligible postgraduate Master’s programme.

The scholarship will be awarded broadly on the basis of academic merit. Candidates must have, or expect to obtain, a UK first class or 2:1 honours degree at undergraduate level or the international equivalent.
