There are two principal funding council sources relevant to our postgraduate UK or EU research students.
Students may apply to the council that is most relevant to their area of study. Normally, only those students who are UK citizens domiciled within Great Britain are eligible for a full award, which covers fees at the UK rate, an annual stipend, and a research expenses allowance). These awards cover tuition fees for a maximum of three years’ tuition fees at the Home/EU rate, as well as an annual maintenance stipend of about £13,300, payable in equal monthly instalments, for a maximum of three years.
Please note that the AHRC award currently open for applications is in Archaeology.
Applicants for these awards are required to first have a study application already in process. Successful applicants for nomination are likely to hold a UK first class honours undergraduate degree (or overseas equivalent) and/or have demonstrated an equivalent level of performance in a master's degree.
