Eligibility and availability
We welcome expressions of interest from all candidates who meet the University’s entry criteria for Postgraduate Research degrees. We especially welcome expressions of interest from people from groups that have been under-represented in the UK Post Graduate Research community in the past, including people from ethnic minorities, women, disabled people, and people from care-experienced or socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
Recommendations for the offer of a studentship will be made by a panel of senior members of the University that will consider all applications from qualified candidates, supported by an adviser on equality, diversity and inclusion. The panel will consider a range of criteria, focusing on candidates’ academic excellence, evidence of advanced methodological skills and capacity to undertake a major piece of independent research at doctoral level.
How to apply
Applications are now closed for the first intake of IAS Studentships, but there will be another opportunity later this year to apply for entry in 2024. Thank you to everyone who submitted an expression of interest for our first round of IAS Studentships, we will notify all applicants of the outcome by June 2023.
