Students wishing to undertake research or fieldwork in Latin America will incur costs for flights, accommodation and subsistence. There are sources of funding available to students to apply to for research trips, eg the Simon Bolivar Fund and the Santander Student Travel Grants scheme, but students should not expect all of the costs of their research trip to be covered. If you have any concerns about this please speak to a member of CLAS staff before applying noting that research abroad is not a mandatory part of the MPhil course.
