We’re very pleased to announce the opening of the recruitment process for the A.S.Hornby Educational Trust scholarships for study in the UK between October 2018 and September 2019. The deadline for receipt of applications is 12.00 midday UK time / 17.30 India time on Friday 16 February 2018.
The A.S.Hornby Educational Trust scholarships are awarded every year to English language teachers from outside the UK to study for a Masters degree in English Language Teaching (ELT) at the University of Warwick.
The Trust was set up by A.S.Hornby in 1961 to support English language teaching worldwide. A.S.Hornby had a distinguished career in ELT and developed the Oxford Advanced Learners’ Dictionary, which is still published in its 9th edition by Oxford University Press. The Trust is a registered charity in the UK.
The scholarships fund study on the one-year MA TESOL at the University of Warwick.
- The scholarships fund all the costs in the UK including a monthly stipend to cover accommodation and living expenses, tuition fees, return air tickets, visa and IELTS test costs.
- Eligible applicants for the scholarship award must have at least two years’ full-time ELT experience and a full university degree, and must be a citizen of an eligible country. The Hornby Scholarships are intended to support experienced English language teachers who have the potential to make a significant future contribution to English language teaching and teachers in their countries on their return from the UK.
- Applicants are selected by a four-stage process. In the first stage, the quality of the application form is assessed. In the second stage, selected applicants are invited for interview at a British Council office in their country of origin. In the third stage, selected applicants apply to the university. In the fourth stage, the applicant is accepted by the university. Only at this stage is the scholarship award confirmed with the applicant.
