York St John University/Goalball UK Scholarship

The School of Sport at York St John University have partnered with Goalball UK to offer an MSc by Research studentship. The value of the scholarship will cover tuition fees for full-time UK and EU students (maximum award is £4,250).

The MSc by Research studentship is associated with the benefits of Goalball for participants. Specifically, we would like to explore (1) the potential of Goalball to instigate ‘bonding capital’ amongst members of the visually impaired community and (2) Goalball’s potential to act as a form of ‘bridging capital’ to integrate visually impaired participants with non-visually impaired participants.

The studentship will be awarded on a competitive basis and subject to the applicant satisfying standard York St John University application processes for MSc by Research.

All applicants must have (or be about to complete) a relevant degree (at least a 2:1 Honours) to enrol on an MSc by Research. It is envisaged that the recipients of the scholarship will have been awarded a first-class degree.
