PhD Scholarships x 3

University of York - Department of Education

The Department of Education at the University of York has a number of Departmental PhD Studentships available for students wishing to commence a three-year full-time PhD programme in October 2018.

The Department is offering three PhD Scholarship Awards in total; one to be appointed within each of the following three Departmental research groups:

  • Centre for Research in Language Learning and Use (CReLLU)
  • Centre for Research on Education & Social Justice (CRESJ)
  • Psychology in Education Research Centre (PERC) 

We are keen to receive applications from candidates who wish to work with a specific member of staff on (or very closely aligned with) a named research project outlined by that member of staff. Applications from candidates with high quality research proposals on other research topics with any member of staff will also be considered. All candidates will need to submit a research proposal, approximately 1,500 words in length, as part on the application process.

Full details of staff and their named research projects can be found here:

The award includes the cost of tuition fees (Home/EU rate) and an annual stipend (£14,777 in 2018-19) for three years, subject to satisfactory progress. Students will also have access to a research training support grant of up to £750 per annum.

Successful applicants will be asked, as part of the award, to make a contribution to departmental activities, e.g., teaching, research, citizenship or mentoring, equating to five hours per week during term time (some of the work however may occur outside term time).
