Faculty of Arts and Humanities Postgraduate Research Studentships
Deadline for 2019/20 entry has passed; details for 2021/22 entry will be confirmed in August 2020.
Eligibility and availability
In order to be eligible, you must already have been offered a place on one of our postgraduate research programmes. If you hold a conditional offer, you are still eligible to apply. See further details here on how to apply for a postgraduate research programme.
Applicants should not already be holding external funding awards for the same academic session, but they may of course be in the process of applying for other awards.
The studentships are open to Home/EU and Overseas applications, subject to the necessary eligibility and visa requirements. You are required to obtain your supervisor’s signature in support of your application. You are also strongly advised to discuss your studentship application with your supervisor prior to submission.
How do I apply?
Application form provided below must be used. Applicants should also submit
- A complete application form (available here in August 2020)
- Full transcripts – copies of degree certificates alone do not provide sufficient evidence. Transcripts should be in English, and where necessary a certified translation should be provided
As well as making a full postgraduate research programme application, applicants wishing to be considered for these studentships should complete the Postgraduate Research Studentship Application Form (available here in August 2020), and submit it electronically to the Graduate Studies inbox, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Notification of awards
Please note that by submitting your application, you agree to have your application reviewed the Panel of Studentship Committee. Applications will be ranked according to academic merit by a Faculty Awards Committee.
For those who apply to AHRC DTP2 Scheme
Students who have applied for the AHRC DTP Scheme will automatically be considered for the Faculty Studentships. There is no need to submit a separate application if you have applied for the AHRC DTP2 studentships.
