We are pleased to announce that under the Block Grant Partnership, we are able to offer one doctoral studentship to commence in September 2010. The studentship will enable a successful postgraduate applicant to undertake and complete a doctoral degree (PhD) in our department. Full and partial awards are available through this scheme. A full award covers fees and an annual, tax free stipend of £13,290 (2009/10 rates). A partial award covers fees only. The Department of Spanish and Latin American Studies at UCL has academic staff whose expertise covers a wide range of subjects in areas including: Spanish cinema, Latin American cinema, nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature and culture of Spain and Latin America, the culture and history of early modern Spain and Latin America, Latino and hemispheric American studies.
Eligibility and timetable
You must hold a conditional or unconditional offer for study at UCL to be eligible for this scheme and you should also meet the AHRC’s student eligibility criteria.
If you are interested in applying for this award you should submit TWO applications for the MPhil/PhD degree including a detailed research proposal and two academic references (for more, click here). ONE application should be sent to the Graduate Tutor, Dr Claire Lindsay, which should clearly indicate that you wish to be considered for the AHRC scheme. The SECOND application should be sent to Admissions. Both should reach UCL by Friday 12 February 2010.
We will then notify you a) if you have been offered a place on the MPhil/PhD programme and b) if you are being considered for the AHRC studentship (in which case we shall also invite you for interview or arrange for a telephone interview if travel to London is not feasible).
