The Institute of Archaeology has been successful in obtaining funding for PhD students and scholarships for Masters students for entry in September 2014.

AHRC Funding

The Institute is pleased to announce that it is part of the AHRC-funded London Arts and Humanities Partnership (LAHP) which brings together three leading UK research organisations, University College London (UCL), King’s College London (KCL) and the School of Advanced Study (SAS) which will be able to offer up to 80 PhD studentships for 2014-5.

Applications are now open for full awards and fee-only awards for full-time or part-time UK/EU students.

Interested students should be in the process of applying for doctoral research and are strongly advised to contact potential supervisors by early January at the latest. Applicants may also contact the Institute's Graduate Admissions Tutor, Andrew Reynolds, who can suggest potential supervisors.

For further details on how to apply for admission onto the research programme please refer to the information on the Institute's MPhil/PhD research pages.

If you have any queries regarding admissions or this funding please contact Lisa Daniel, Graduate Programmes Administrator.

Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme

Applicants who are from developing Commonwealth countries and have been accepted onto the Institute's MA in Managing Archaeological Sites or MA in Museum Studies are eligible to apply for the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme.

Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme

The Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme is a joint initiative between the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (with funding from the Department for International Development (DFID)), and UK universities, to support scholarships for students from developing Commonwealth countries who would not otherwise be able to study in the United Kingdom.

The aim of the scheme is to assist academically excellent students from developing Commonwealth countries who would not otherwise be able to afford to study in the United Kingdom. The scheme allows them to benefit from postgraduate study at a university in the United Kingdom which will help them to contribute toward the development of their home countries.

Awards are for taught Master's programmes only, subjects must be related to the economic, social and technological development of a candidate's country.

UCL expects to be able to allocate five awards this academic year.

Enquiries about how to apply for this funding or admission to the relevant Masters degree programmes may be directed to Lisa Daniel, Graduate Programmes Administrator.
