Scholarships and Student Funding

HCA Doctoral Scholarships

The School is pleased to invite applications from outstanding candidates for its Doctoral Scholarships Awards for 2015-2016 entry. Up to three awards will be available.

These PhD studentships will pay a stipend at the equivalent rate to that offered by the Research Councils (value TBA, but for guidance, in 2014-2015 this was £13,863). Tuition fees at the EU rate will also be paid. Payment will be made in equal monthly instalments for a maximum of three years, subject to satisfactory performance. Awards will be paid pro-rata for part-time candidates.

As one of the intentions of these awards is to enhance the skills portfolio of successful candidates, awardees will normally be required undertake specified teaching and related duties as an integral part of their scholarship package.

For EU applicants intending to apply to the AHRC for funding, we strongly advise you to also apply for these School of History, Classics and Archaeology Doctoral Scholarships, as well as any others you may be eligible for, as AHRC will consider you for EU rate tuition fees awards only.


Applicants for these awards must:

  • have submitted an application for study in EUCLID by 5 January 2015
  • hold a UK first class honours undergraduate degree (or overseas equivalent) in a relevant field
  • demonstrate an equally high standard of academic performance in a postgraduate master’s degree in a relevant field, or be on course to do so


This scholarship is now closed. We are no longer accepting applications for the 2015-2016 academic session.


All applicants will be notified of the outcome by March 2015.
