09 July 2012: Tuition scholarships for 2012/2013
Edge Scholar grants for our flagship MA in Sociology and Management.
For 2012, we are offering three scholarships for our MA in Sociology and Management. This joint programme run between the Department of Sociology and Essex Business School is funded by the Edge Foundation, an independent education foundation dedicated to raising the status of practical and vocational learning. The scholarships will cover the cost of tuition fees at the home / EU rate (£4,650).
The Department of Sociology at Essex is one of the top Sociology departments in the UK. We are the only Sociology department in the country to have been awarded the highest rating in all six of the national Research Assessment Exercises (RAE) that have been undertaken since 1986. In the latest RAE, back in 2008, we achieved joint first position nationally.
Featuring four research centres in Accounting, Finance, Entrepreneurship and Management, Essex Business School has an international reputation for high quality research across the whole range of business subjects. At Essex we emphasize teaching not only in core business disciplines, but also on the wider social, ethical and environmental implications to current business strategy and practice.
During this 12-month taught programme, Edge Scholars follow a combination of mandatory and optional modules, including Sociological Research Design, Dynamics of Home and Work and Management in Organisations, and undertake an independent dissertation on research pertinent to the operation and future development of the Edge Hotel School, a joint collaboration between the Edge Foundation and the University of Essex.
A good undergraduate degree in a social science-related discipline (higher second class or first). If you are waiting on results, then please provide your expected result. For non-native speakers of English, either a TOEFL score of 580 or an IELTS score of 6.5 is required. This scholarship is open to UK and European students.
