2017-18 Research Postgraduate Studentships

University of Stirling - Faculty of Arts and Humanities

The Faculty of Arts and Humanities is pleased to offer two research postgraduate studentships at the equivalent of AHRC rates for students starting a research degree programme in the coming academic year 2017-18 (normal start date will be 1 October 2017).

These studentships will be awarded competitively and applicants may come from any of the various subject areas of the Faculty – Communications, Media and Culture, Law, Philosophy, History, Politics, English (including Publishing Studies and Creative Writing), Languages, and Religion, with the intention of attracting the best possible candidates for research work within or across these respective disciplines.

Value of the Studentships

The funds will extend across a two-year MPhil (or four years part-time), or three-year PhD period (six years part-time), and will cover fees at Home/EU rates and maintenance (equivalent to AHRC rates).     

Student Eligibility

In order to be eligible, you must already have been offered a place on one of our research postgraduate programmes by Wednesday 18 January 2017. If you hold a conditional offer, you are still eligible to apply. (See further details here on How to Apply for a research postgraduate programme.)

Applicants should not already be holding external funding awards for the 2017-18 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.

Submission Deadline

As well as making a full research postgraduate programme application, applicants wishing to be considered for these studentships should complete the Research Postgraduate Studentship Application Form (see below), and submit it electronically to the Graduate Studies inbox, fahgs@stir.ac.uk, no later than Wednesday 18 January 2017.

Notification of Awards

Applications will be ranked according to academic merit by a Faculty Awards Committee. Award holders will be notified in May 2017.

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 DTP studentships.
