The AHRC funds research and postgraduate study within the UK's higher education institutions.
The University of Aberdeen is part of a consortium of eight Higher Education institutions which has been awarded funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to support postgraduate studentships and training in the Arts and Humanities in Scotland. Under the Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) scheme, the consortium - comprised of the Universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Glasgow, Edinburgh, St Andrews, Stirling, Strathclyde and Glasgow School of Art - will consider applications for doctoral studentship awards in the majority of Arts and Humanities subjects.
The University of Aberdeen is now taking applications for AHRC-funded studentships in the following subject areas:
Cultural and Museum Studies
Divinity and Theology
English Language and Linguistics
Ethnology and Folkore
Law and Legal Studies
Normally only those students who have been resident in the UK, for purposes other than education, for the preceding three years are eligible for a full award. For some awards candidates who are nationals of a member state of the EU and are resident in the UK may also be eligible for fees only awards.
