 Funded PhD Programme (Students Worldwide)

About the Programme

 Through the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities (SGSAH), University of Strathclyde is part of a consortium of ten Higher Education institutions which has been awarded funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to support PhD studentships at full UKRI rates. The other HEI members are the Universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Glasgow, Edinburgh, the Highlands and Islands, St Andrews, Stirling, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Glasgow School of Art.

The AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership Scotland is nested within the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities. As a collaboration of Scottish HEIs involved in the Arts and Humanities, SGSAH is dedicated to making the best possible provision for doctoral researchers in these areas. It is supported by both the Scottish Funding Council and the Arts and Humanities Research Council and aims to create a supportive community of doctoral graduates, capable of being research leaders in whichever sector they choose to enter upon graduation.

Potential applicants are advised to check if they meet current AHRC eligibility requirements before applying. Subject to eligibility, we are keen to hear from anyone with an interest in applying for a studentship. Please contact the academic panel representatives listed below for further information or with any queries.

It is essential that you take the time to read the SGSAH Doctoral Training Partnership & Funded Open Studentship Competition 2022 Guidance.

The Guidance includes the application form.

The Strathclyde closing date for 2022/23 entry to the AHRC DTP competition is Monday 6th December 2021 (12 noon).

To be eligible, a good honours degree at First Class or Upper Second Class or a masters with Distinction is required. Applicants already holding doctoral qualifications should not apply.

The eligibility criteria for UKRI funding changed for studentships commencing from the 2021/22 academic year onwards. Now, all Home and International students are eligible to apply for UKRI funding which will cover the full stipend and Home tuition fees. *The international portion of the tuition fee cannot be funded by the UKRI grant, but will be covered for successful applicants by the University of Strathclyde.

Under the new criteria, UKRI have stipulated a maximum percentage (30%) of International students that can be recruited each year against individual training grants. The final funding decision will be made by the SGSSS and ESRC.

To be classed as a home student, applicants must meet the following criteria:

Be a UK national (meeting residency requirements), or
Have settled status, or
Have pre-settled status (meeting residency requirements), or
Have indefinite leave to remain or enter.
If a student does not meet the criteria above, they will be classed as an international student. The international portion of the tuition fee cannot be funded by the UKRI grant and must be covered from other sources. International students are permitted to self-fund the difference between the home and international fee rates.
