Exciting Scholarship News for Masters Students at 78 Derngate Event!

On Wednesday 18th March, English staff, current MA and PhD students and prospective MA students gathered for a special event at 78 Derngate, Northampton.  Courtesy of the School of The Arts, staff and students were treated to a tour of the beautiful restored Modernist interior of 78 Derngate, to see the gorgeous designs of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.  Tours of the house were followed by refreshments and canapes in the 78 Derngate atrium, where students were treated to a special announcement by Professor Richard Canning and Dr Sonya Andermahr.

HEFCE and the University of Northampton will be jointly sponsoring 54 Masters scholarships worth £10,000 to be distributed to various subject areas across the university.  A separate scheme was also announced, namely that as part of the University’s 10th anniversary celebrations,  the University of Northampton will be offering all current students and alumni* the opportunity to enjoy a 25% discount on Masters study.

A lovely evening was had by all, as you can see from this slideshow of photographs taken at the event.
