If accepted onto the course, students can also apply for a number of grants and bursaries to contribute to travel costs to attend conferences and to carry out fieldwork in Latin America.

Your Estimated Annual Commitment:

Component Cost
University Composition Fee £8,844

Students wishing to undertake research or fieldwork in Latin America will incur costs for flights, accommodation and subsistence. There are sources of funding available to students to apply to for research trips, e.g. the Simon Bolivar Fund,  but students should not expect all of the costs of their research trip to be covered. If you have any concerns about this please speak to a member of CLAS staff before applying noting that research abroad is not a mandatory part of the course.
