Masters Funding English (Viking and Anglo-Saxon)

Hi,
I'm looking into funding opportunities to do my English MA. I have already noted down as many details as I can of routes to check, research councils, scholarships and bursaries from the School/Uni website etc. Wondering if anyone knew of anywhere else I should be checking! Thanks so much!

    The Research Councils don't fund Master's level courses, they haven't offered funding for this level for quite a long time now. They offer PhD funding but they award money to universities and it's the universities that manage the funding and recruit students, not the Councils themselves.

    I think that everyone I know who did a Masters funded themselves, either from savings or from a bank loan.

    What job opportunities does that masters open from your normal degree? If your passionate about a subject and there are jobs fund it yourself. Work for s year or two then go.

    I was wondering the same, especially as it's not one of the subjects with wide application.


    I had to fund my own OU degree (a first in maths),as I had received my funding for my earlier Cert Ed(abandoned BEd as a good teaching post came up).It made very little difference to pay and a colleague who had a masters (also in maths) said he thought the expense a waste of time. The best next step would be a PhD, but I didn't fancy that or spending more money, as we had a young family.
