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 new 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.
In 2015/16, the CDT in Celtic Languages will fund approximately 6 studentships, which may be held at any one of our consortium institutions; supervision across two institutions is also possible, but you must be primarily admitted to one HEI.
Applicants for CDT studentships must hold a conditional or unconditional offer of a place on a PhD programme at one of the consortium’s institutions. Applicants must be nominated for a CDT studentship by the host institution. Institutions will select their nominations by Monday, 9 February 2015 at the latest. Nominated students will then be advised to complete an application for a CDT studentship by Friday, 27 February, employing the CDT application form.
Completed PhD applications should be made via the University of Edinburgh online application system by Friday 30 January 2015 in order to ensure that your PhD application is processed in time for consideration within a very tight selection timescale.
