The Leipzig Postgraduate Scholarship in Modern European History

The Leipzig Scholarship in Modern European History was established to enable a student to study on the MA degree course in Modern History offered by the School of History. It is open to applicants interested in undertaking study into Modern European History.

We are a diverse community of practitioners, scholars and academics who teach, research, and provide professional development. Our postgraduate students come from a wide variety of geographical and personal backgrounds, and it is the vibrant and dynamic community which they create that completes the student experience.

The MA in Modern History offers you the opportunity to work with a group of historians who continue UEA’s long-standing reputation as a major centre for the study of modern European, British, and international history. We have a unique and distinctive concentration of expertise in European history in the 19th and 20th centuries, especially that of Russia, Germany, France, Italy, and Yugoslavia. We also hold one of the largest groups of modern British historians in the country, specializing in particular in social, political, and imperial history. Other colleagues contributing to the MA programme include experts in refugee studies, the history of human rights, modern Japan, and US diplomatic history.

UEA’s School of History was rated third after Cambridge and Oxford in research intensity (REF 2014). The breadth and depth of our expertise is reflected in the programme, which encourages scholarly debate and independent research.

This course is also available on a part-time basis.

The Leipzig Scholarship in Modern European History is worth £7,300, available as a tuition fee discount.
