AHRC Studentships with the London Arts & Humanities Doctoral Training Partnership

The London Arts and Humanities Partnership (AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership) is pleased to invite applications from outstanding candidates for AHRC-LAHP Doctoral Training Awards for 2019/20 entry. Up to 90 studentships are available for postgraduate research students studying arts and humanities disciplines at King's College London, London School of Economics & Political Science, Queen Mary University London, Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, Royal College of Art, Royal College of Music, School of Advanced Study or University College London. The research topic must be within the subject areas covered by the AHRC.

Subject to eligibility, these awards will cover:

  • Tuition fees for three years at the Home/EU rate
  • Annual maintenance grant or allowance (stipend)
  • LAHP has a limited number of full awards (fees and stipend) for EU students designated `fees-only’ by the AHRC

As part of its AHRC funding, LAHP offers a wide range of training and skills development opportunities and activities, some in partnership with major London cultural and business partners.

How to Apply

Applications are now open for studentships starting in October 2019 via the online application form accessible via our website.

To be eligible for a LAHP studentship in the forthcoming recruitment round you must either:

  • have submitted an application to commence a programme of postgraduate study in the 2019/20 academic year, which starts in September/October 2019, or
  • if you have already commenced doctoral study, you may apply for funding for the remainder of your study, provided that, at the start of the AHRC award (1st October 2019), you will have at least 50% of the period of study remaining (excluding the writing-up period).

Awards cannot be deferred and selected candidates will be assumed to be starting their studies in September/October 2019 unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Residency requirements

LAHP studentships are open to UK and EU students who meet the residency requirements as detailed on pages 13/14 of the UKRI Conditions of Research Council Training Grants. Please note: LAHP has a limited number of full awards (fees and stipend) for EU students designated `fees-only’ by the AHRC. Applications cannot be accepted from students liable to pay fees at the Overseas rate.

Candidates should hold a first-class or a good upper-second class Honours degree or equivalent, and would normally be expected to hold a Masters degree.
