The University of Aberdeen 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
In 2018/19, the CDT in Celtic Languages will fund approximately 5 studentships, which may be held at any one of the 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, 5 February 2018 at the latest. Nominated students will then be advised to complete an application for a CDT studentship by Friday, 23 February, employing the CDT application form. The University of Aberdeen will accept applications in all areas of Celtic and Gaelic Studies, although you are encouraged to contact relevant staff first to discuss a possible application, contact details are provided below.
• Candidates will normally hold a relevant First Class Honours degree (such as BA, MA, BMus, BSc, LLB) and preferably a similar calibre of Master’s degree
