The Strawberry Hill History Scholarship

We can help you pursue your passion for History at St Mary’s University, with our Strawberry Hill History Scholarship.

As a History student at St Mary's, you will benefit from a wide breadth of choice across the programme and dedicated academic staff who are keen to ensure that you achieve your very best.

Our curriculum is designed on the principle of research-led teaching: you will be taught by historians who are experts in their fields.

We are ranked the number one History department in London for teaching quality, and number two for student experience (Times Good University Guide, 2019). We care about excellence.

If you also care about academic excellence and quality teaching and learning, and you want to study in London, then you can apply for a scholarship that will help to reduce the costs of going to University. This means that your hard work at school will be recognised by your lecturers at university, and should help you cover the costs of studying so that you can focus on your course.
