Deadline: March 2, 2012
The Arts and Humanities Research Council provides funding for postgraduate study for UK/EU students, on a competitive basis.
For 2012 entry, the School of English will offer:
* 3 Research Preparation Masters Awards – for students undertaking Masters courses that focus on advanced study and research training explicitly intended to provide a foundation for further research at doctoral level. Awards normally for one year’s full time study or two years’ part-time study
For the above awards, UK students will be eligible for a full award, covering academic fees at the UK/EU rate and a maintenance grant. EU candidates will be eligible for an award paying academic fees only, except in exceptional circumstances or where residency in the UK has been established for more than 3 years prior to the start of the course. Eligibility enquiries should be made to the Postgraduate Scholarships Office in the first instance.
Each School will select a shortlist of candidates that they wish to recommend for an award. The University’s BGP Committee will then meet to consider the shortlists and will approve the selection of the successful candidates. Student nominations will be made to AHRC through the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system. Further instructions on creating Je-S accounts and nomination forms will be given to all shortlisted candidates in May.
The outcome of the selection process will be available in summer 2012. You can consult the AHRC website to find about more about the competition.
