DURHAM University is offering bursaries to students enrolling on some of its post-graduate programmes.

The new scheme will pay out £2,550 towards the fees of two students sitting one of three MA courses in youth work, which start in October.

Eligible courses include MA Community and Youth Work, MA Managing Community Practice and the recently-launched MA Managing Youth Work Practice.

As part of their studies, successful applicants will undertake research on an original and relevant topic of their choice, supported by experienced academics.
