Our CHASE AHRC PhD studentships offer an outstanding funding and training opportunity to the next generation of world-leading arts and humanities scholars. Our studentships offer far more than just funding. You'll be part of an active and interdisciplinary network of elite doctoral students. Alongside close and expert supervision, you will benefit from an exciting range of professional development opportunities.
As a CHASE partner institution, our University has access to funds for organising training events and activities specifically designed to foster links between the community of CHASE doctoral scholars and to enhance your capacity to become a future leader in your field.
As well as CHASE funding, you will also benefit from Proficio, our University's unique professional development scheme for doctoral students. You'll receive up to £2,500 during your studies to fund conference attendance and specialist training across a range of areas from research skills and managing your PhD, to presenting your work and getting published.
Studentships are open to home and EU students.
For home and EU students resident in the UK for at least three years, funding covers fees, maintenance and professional development opportunities during your PhD.
For EU applicants with less than three years residence in the UK, funding covers fees only during your PhD.
You can apply for our CHASE AHRC studentships through our University's participating schools and departments. We strongly encourage you to contact the School or Department you wish to apply to at the earliest opportunity in order to discuss your research proposal and potential supervision arrangements. Your chosen supervisor(s) will work closely with you on your application and research proposal. The department will provide you with an access code for you to commence the application process.
The deadline for applications for October 2020 entry is 9am on Monday 27 January 2020.
You must apply for a PhD as well as applying for our studentships. The deadline by which you must have applied for a PhD at Essex is Monday 13 January 2020.
