In 2016/17, two awards are available for full time History PhD applicants for 2016-2017 entry. These awards cover an annual stipend payable at Research Council rates (as an example, in 2015/16, this was £14,057), and tuition fees at the Home/EU rate will also be paid. Successful overseas applicants remain liable for the difference between the Home/EU and overseas fee rate of tuition fee.

These applications will be decided on the basis of academic merit.
