Four departmental scholarships of £2400 will be
available for students applying for the MSc in Language Sciences.
Candidates holding an offer of admission to UCL for the MSc Language
Sciences by 1 June 2013 will be considered for these awards. It is
therefore strongly recommended that applications for admission to UCL
are submitted as early as possible, and certainly no later than six
weeks before the 1 June 2013 scholarship deadline. These scholarships
will be primarily awarded on the basis of academic merit rather than
according to financial need. Successful applicants will be students with
outstanding academic potential and will have achieved excellent results
in the qualifications already obtained. Please note that these
scholarships cannot be held in conjunction with other funding.

Normally a minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree in a language related area (such as linguistics, speech sciences, psycholology, cognitive science or a cognate discipline) from a UK university, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.
Where necessary English language proficiency must be evidenced at the UCL "good" level, a list of accepted qualifications is available here.
Deadline for Applications
The deadline for applications is 2 August 2013. However students are advised to apply as early as possible due to competition for places. Those applying for scholarship funding (particularly overseas applicants) should take note of application deadlines.
