Durham University Funding
The University has established a Doctoral Studentships Scheme to support International as well as UK and EU PhD and MLitt students. Initial enquiries may be made to the Director of Postgraduate Studies in English, Professor T J A Clark.
The majority of UK taught and research postgraduate students can be considered for funding awards from the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Students must be in receipt of an offer of a place at a university before they are eligible for an AHRC award.
The subject area of English will have 2 doctoral studentships a year to award to the best applicants, up to 2013. For details please follow the links on the right-hand side of this page.
The Department has recently set up several small Research Assistantships, partly to offer research students training in subject specific skills. Research Students are paid (£300-500) to help with the research project of a member of staff. We plan to continue this scheme for 2012 and beyond.
