Funding

*UPDATES FOR 2015/16 FUNDING IN PROGRESS, PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR FURTHER INFORMATION!*

The main sources of funding for postgraduate study are as follows:

Part Time Study: All grants and scholarships are competitive, and increasing numbers of students now study without a grant, by means of working part-time to earn money. It is usually not difficult to change registration from part-time to full-time, so that you can create some flexibility in how much time you can dedicate to your research at different stages of the degree. For advice, please contact the Graduate Tutor, Eleanor Robson.

PLEASE NOTE: Your chances of success both in your application and in obtaining funding will be much diminished if you have not discussed your research plans in detail with your prospective supervisor, at least by correspondence and in person if possible, as the supervisor may have to write references for you as part of your particular funding applications. It is in your interest to make contact with your potential supervisor as soon as possible.


Arts and Humanities Research Council studentships (AHRC)

UCL (alongside the School of Advanced Study and King's College London) is a participant in the LAHP, which has been awarded over £18 million by the AHRC, in addition to which £12.5 million has been raised by the three institutions to fund studentships and training.  This means that the LAHP will be able to offer approximately 400 postgraduate studentships over five annual cohorts from October 2014, (80 per year).  UCL History therefore expects that strong applicants to its MPhil/PhD programme who are AHRC-eligible will be highly competitive in the LAHP competition for studentships.

Prospective applicants who wish to be considered for an AHRC studentship should apply in the first instance via the UCL Admissions application system.

Application process

The application process has two parts:

1.

UCL Admissions application

The admissions application deadline is Wednesday 7th January 2015 (that is the date by which your on-line UCL application for admission must be recorded as received by the College Admissions Office). You can access the UCL graduate admissions information: via http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate-study/application.  In order to be considered for AHRC funding applicants must tick the relevant box on the UCL application to indicate they wish to be put forward for this funding (alongside any other funds they are applying for).

2.

LAHP application form

Applicants must also apply online through the LAHP.  The LAHP application portal opens 1 December 2014.

If you have any queries, please contact the History Department’s Postgraduate Administrator.


Economic and Social Research Council studentships

The ESRC supports historical research that seeks to understand the development of social and economic arrangements over time and applies social and economic theories. Research focusing on contemporary or near-contemporary social, political, economic or geographical themes should normally be directed to the ESRC.

The Department of History can nominate two students for studentships for 2014/15.  These comprise full-time fees (UK/EU) and maintenance.

The application deadline is Wednesday 7th January 2015 (that is the date by which your on-line UCL application for admission must be recorded as received by the College Admissions Office).

You can access the UCL graduate admissions information: via http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate-study/application.

Only candidates who have already been offered a place on one of the Department of History programmes will be considered for an award.

If you have any queries, please contact the History Department’s Postgraduate Administrator.
