PhD Scholarships: History, Classics and Archaeology, the University of Edinburgh

The School of History, Classics and Archaeology is delighted to offer a number of PhD scholarships for programmes starting in 2018/19.

Applications are welcome from students applying to study on any of our PhD programmes: Archaeology, Classics, History, Economic and Social History, and Scottish History.


The awards provide full-time tuition fees at the UK/EU rate with an annual stipend at the equivalent rate to that offered by the Research Councils of the United Kingdom (value to be arranged, but for guidance, in 2017-2018 this was £14,553).


Applicants for these awards must:

  • Hold a UK 2.1 or first class honours undergraduate degree (or overseas equivalent) in a relevant field
  • Hold, or successfully achieve before commencing their PhD with us, an equally high standard of postgraduate master’s degree in a relevant field


Applicants must submit a PhD application by 26 January 2018, and a scholarship application for the School Doctoral Award by 1 February 2018.
