PhD Studentships from the AHRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Celtic Languages
Gaelic Version: Tionndadh Gàidhlig
The University of Edinburgh is part of a consortium of twelve institutions which has been awarded funding in the amount of £1.85 million from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to support postgraduate studentships and training in Celtic Languages for 2014-19. Under the Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT) scheme, the consortium, comprised of Bangor University, Queen’s University Belfast, Swansea University, the Universities of Aberdeen, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Oxford, Ulster, the University of the Highlands and Islands, the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies, and the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, will consider applications for postgraduate studentships in Celtic Languages.
The website for the CDT in the Celtic Languages, which gives full details on the application procedure can be found here:
In 2017/18, the CDT in Celtic Languages will fund approximately 5 studentships, which may be held at any one of our consortium HEIs. Supervision across two HEIs is also strongly encouraged, and should be explored prior to completing your application, but you must be primarily admitted to one HEI, which will be your host institution and which will complete the institutional statement of support.
Applicants for CDT studentships must hold a conditional or unconditional offer of a place on a PhD programme at one of the consortium’s Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). Applicants must be nominated for a CDT studentship by the host institution. Institutions will select their nominations by Monday, 6 February 2017 at the latest. Nominated students will then be advised to complete an application for a CDT studentship by Friday, 24 February, employing the CDT application form.
Applying for Admission
Completed PhD applications should be made via the University of Edinburgh online application system by Wednesday 4 January 2017 in order to ensure that your PhD application is processed in time for consideration within a very tight selection timescale.
