Bradley de Glehn English Scholarship

Bradley de Glehn English Scholarship

The Bradley de Glehn Scholarship was established by Mrs Ernest de Glehn in memory of her brother, AC Bradley.

Three scholarships are available for full or part-time postgraduate students with Home or International fee status studying for a taught Masters course within the Department of English. 

The scholarships are offered as a tuition fee reduction of up to £9,600. (The fee reduction will be to the value of the Home status fee for your chosen course, visit our course finder for more information on fees for individual courses). 

Am I eligible?

You must have achieved, or be expected to achieve, at least a 2:1 degree or equivalent.

You must hold an offer to study one of the following courses: 

  • MA Creative Writing 
  • MA English Literature 
  • MA Victorian Literature, Art and Culture
  • MA Medieval Studies

How do I apply?

You must apply via our online system Royal Holloway Direct, where you will be able to complete your statement and upload any required documents including your grades transcript.

The deadline for applications is 1 July, 2021. 

You must provide a supporting statement of no more than 400 words outlining why you should receive the scholarship. You should include: 

  • Academic achievements you are particularly proud of and why these really matter to you 
  • Why you have chosen to do the degree you have applied for 
  • What your future aspirations are and how the scholarship will help you to achieve your future goals. 

Your statement will be judged on how effectively and convincingly you respond to the above. 

As well as your statement, you will need to upload your most recent grades transcript from your undergraduate degree. 


For Home fee students, the scholarship provides a full tuition fee reduction. Home fee students will not be eligible for any other tuition fee discount, for example the alumni discount. The above also applies to International fee students who qualify for the EU fee reduction scholarship. 

For International fee students, the scholarship provides a reduction on your tuition fees to the value of the Home status fee of the chosen course (up to £9,600). Other tuition fee discounts, such as the alumni discount, will apply (if eligible), with the discount applied after the scholarship.
