London Arts & Humanities Partnership

The London Arts and Humanities Partnership has up to 80 PhD studentships available for postgraduate students applying for a doctoral programme in the arts and humanities at one of the three partner institutions: King’s, UCL and the School of Advanced Study. Subject to availability, these awards will cover:

  • tuition fees for a maximum of three years at the Home/EU rate
  • annual maintenance grant or allowance (stipend)

Before applying for a LAHP studentship you must have already applied for admission, LAHP strongly recommends that you submit your admissions application before Friday 16th January 2015.

If you have already commenced doctoral study, you may apply for funding for the remainder of your study, providing that, at the start of the AHRC award (September 2015), you will have at least 50% of the period of study remaining.

LAHP studentships are open to UK and EU students who meet the AHRC’s residency requirements. EU students are eligible to apply for LAHP funding on exactly the same basis as UK students. LAHP expects to make full awards (fees and maintenance) to successful EU candidates in 2015.

ESRC 2014/15 PhD & ‘1+3’ Studentships

Having won a coveted place in the national network of doctoral training centres accredited by ESRC in 2011, the King’s Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Centre (KISS-DTC) is pleased to announce that it will be awarding a number of ESRC-funded postgraduate studentships for the 2014/15 academic session to support doctoral research and training across the social sciences at King’s College London.

This year, King’s invites applications for both three-year PhD studentships and four-year ‘1+3’  studentships, for candidates applying for a Masters degree leading directly on to a PhD.

Information on subject areas eligible for ESRC Funding can be found here.

ESRC studentship funding is highly competitive. In view of the limited number of awards and the very high standard of applications received, successful applicants are likely to have a very good first degree (BA or BSc Honours or equivalent), at first class standard (or upper second class with clear evidence of first class work). Applicants for a doctoral award will normally also have an appropriate Masters degree (at distinction or at least high merit level) and/or another appropriate qualification, such as prior professional or work-related expertise, relevant to your proposed area of study.

Candidates should complete the relevant Case for Support form for your chosen mode of studentship (+3 or 1+3). You will also need to complete a full admissions application for your chosen Masters or PhD programme. The application should include two references, and transcripts from all previous study.

Current doctoral students who will have completed no more than 12 months full-time study (or part-time equivalent) as of 1 October 2014 are also eligible to apply for ESRC funding. Current students do not need to complete a new admissions application, but will need to provide a reference from their primary supervisor.

Application forms and further guidance can be found online at
