The University of Stirling is a member of the Scottish Graduate School of Arts and Humanities (SGSAH). It is also a member of Higher Education Institution of the AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership Scotland (AHRC DTP Scotland). The SGSAH has received funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to support postgraduate studentships, training and support for postgraduate Research Students in the Arts and Humanities. The DTP studentship offers a high-value scholarship package which supports students to pursue innovative research in their chosen research areas. The design of the DTP will benefit successful students from training and development opportunities, such as events, internships and artist residencies, short term language courses and summer school.
The Faculty will run a training event for applicants, and prospective supervisors will work closely with successful applicants on their applications. A Faculty panel will also provide detailed feedback on applications.
The University of Stirling is now taking applications for AHRC-funded PhD studentships in the following subject areas:
