Postgraduate Courses

For UK and EU students, the main funding body for postgraduate study in the arts and humanities is the AHRC but individual universities may offer further funding opportunities to prospective students. A number of grants to support to postgraduate studies are also offered by the A. G. Leventis Foundation. Greek or Cypriot students may also be eligible to apply to the Greek Archaeological Committee UK, the Onassis Foundation, or the Foundation for Education and European Culture.
