STIP: PhD studentships, University of Birmingham

Major PhD funding opportunity for UK/EU students

University of Birmingham
Application deadline: Jan 15, 2018

The University of Birmingham is part of the Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M3C DTP), offering up to 80 Arts and Humanities Research Council PhD studentships for campus-based programmes across the six M3C DTP partners.

Each studentship includes full research fees, a substantial maintenance grant and additional research training support. Applications are now open.

For queries about pursing a PhD in Art History, Curating or Visual Studies at the University of Birmingham, please send a 2-page research proposal with an indication of two potential supervisors (one at Birmingham and a second at a university in the M3C partnership), to Dr Claire Jones, Director of Postgraduate Studies, Department of Art History, Curating and Visual Studies,

The Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M3C DTP) is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, De Montfort University, University of Leicester, Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham.

This doctoral scheme provides studentships which enable students to undertake and complete a doctoral degree. Studentships will normally be for up to three years for full-time study, or up to six years for part-time study. They are for campus based students only and distance learning is not therefore eligible.
