AHRC PhD scholarships with the University of Birmingham (Offered through the Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership)

This event is an opportunity to discuss AHRC PhD funding opportunities through the University of Birmingham as a member of The Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M3C DTP). The M3C DTP is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, De Montfort University, University of Leicester, Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.

The M3C DTP is awarding up to 80 Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) PhD studentships for UK/EU applicants for 2018 entry. Recruitment opened on Monday 9 October 2017. The deadline for funding applications and references is Monday 15 January 2018, by which time you must also have applied for a place to study.

This doctoral scheme provides studentships which enable students to undertake and complete a doctoral degree. Studentships will normally be for up to three years for full-time study, or up to six years for part-time study. They are for campus based students only and distance learning is not therefore eligible.

  • Archaeology
  • Classics and Ancient History
  • Drama and Theatre Arts
  • English Language and Literature
