Institute for Archaeo-Metallurgical Studies


Archaeometallurgy student bursaries

20 June 2015

The Institute for Archaeo-Metallurgical Studies (IAMS) and the UCL Institute of Archaeology invite applications for two student bursaries for postgraduate studies in archaeometallurgy leading to an MSc degree.


The two available bursaries are:

  • The IAMS Bursary in Archaeometallurgy (£5,000)
  • The Ronald F. Tylecote Bursary in Archaeometallurgy (£5,000)

Application procedure: Any candidates accepted for the MSc in the Technology and Analysis of Archaeological Materials are eligible for either bursary, provided that they express a commitment to write a dissertation on an archaeometallurgical topic. Students are welcome to suggest their own dissertation topics at the time of applying, but this is not a requisite. In the personal statement accompanying their application to the MSc, they should include a brief comment expressing their interest in being considered for the above bursaries.

Applications will be assessed based on the academic merit of the applicants and their statements.

Deadline: 1 August 2015
