-These awards are only available to applicants who would be liable to pay academic fees at the full international fee rate;
-Applicants must normally hold a First Degree at undergraduate level equivalent to at least a UK First Class Honours degree and should be considered to be the ‘best of the best’ (eg, successful applicants are likely to be in the top 5% of their MSc/MA and BSC/BA cohorts and already in receipt of prizes at national or international level). Applicants should either have graduated with the appropriate First Degree or be in their final year of study. Examples of equivalent degrees to a UK First Class Honours Degree are given below – these are only given as a guideline and further guidance should be sought from the relevant School;
-Applicants whose first language is not English must have already met the University’s English Language requirements by 19 January 2015 or be a current undergraduate student in their final year or a current postgraduate student at a University in an English speaking country. Some Schools require a standard of English higher than the University minimum. You should have a valid test result, which is normally no more than two years old by your official start date at the University of Leeds.
-These awards are not open to individuals who have already been awarded or are currently studying for a Doctoral degree or equivalent qualification;
-LIRS scholarships should not normally be held concurrently with other Scholarships which provide duplicate funding. Successful LIRS award holders may, if they are able to obtain additional funding, hold a bursary which pays travel/accommodation costs etc for UK/overseas fieldwork visits and attendance at conferences.
