FUNDING AND SCHOLARSHIPS
In their applications, students should identify their financial status and state if attendance is contingent on receiving financial aid. The department employs graduate students as marking assistants and a limited number of scholarships, research fellowships and teaching assistantships are available. There is a keen competition for this financial support. Applications for Departmental Scholarships, Research Fellowships and Teaching Assistantships may only be submitted after a student has been admitted.
