Probably not for you (you're beyond MA), but 20,000 pounds is almost 40
grand in US dineros these days. You should know about that institute anyway,
since they are doing a lot of interesting work on the history of Medicine -- 
including Chinese medicine -- with some very good people.

This may not seem particularly indological, but the course offers
possibilities for the serious study of ayurveda, including doing an MA
thesis that could make use of original sources in the Asian languages
supported by scholars at the Centre, that include Sanskrit, Arabic, Urdu,
Chinese, and Tamil.
