Postgraduate Funding


AHRC AWARDS

To be eligible to apply for an AHRC award you must be ordinarily resident in the UK or European Union.

The AHRC Doctoral Awards Scheme
Doctoral awards provide support for up to three years of full-time study, or up to five years of part-time study, to enable students to pursue and complete a programme of doctoral research and gain a doctoral degree.
The AHRC expects full-time award holders to submit their doctoral thesis within four years of the start of their award. Part-time students should submit their thesis within seven years.

To be eligible to apply for an award under the Doctoral Awards Scheme, you should normally have gained a first degree from a recognised HEI and it is normally expected of you to have, or be studying for, a Master’s degree or similar postgraduate qualification. A full award covers both the cost of tuition fees, up to the Research Council maximum, and a maintenance grant.
