Faculty of Arts & Humanities PhD Studentships 2019-20

Faculty of Arts and Humanities

About the Programme

UEA's Faculty of Arts and Humanities invites applications for doctoral studentships for entry in October 2020.

Areas of study include:

  • American Studies
  • Art History
  • Film, Television and Media Studies
  • History
  • Language, Communication and Translation Studies
  • Literature, Drama and Creative Writing
  • Museum and Heritage Studies
  • Philosophy
  • Political, Social and International Studies


Studentship funding for these subjects is available from two sources: 

  1. CHASE AHRC studentship funding, which is available to eligible candidates (usually UK/EU nationals who have been based in the UK for the three years to 1 October 2020)
  2. Faculty of Arts and Humanities studentship funding, which is available to all applicants.

Full studentship funding includes the payment of tuition fees and a stipend (currently £15,009 per year). Eligibility criteria for CHASE AHRC funding can be found at Applicants based in the EU but outside the UK may only be eligible for a fees-only CHASE studentship (which does not pay a stipend).


The deadline for these studentships has now passed.

A number of funded and self-funded PhD projects are offered throughout the academic year. Further projects will be advertised in due course.

We welcome applications from students with their own funding all year - please enquire for further information

South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS) ESRC studentships

  • Linguistics

SeNSS funds integrated 1+3 (Master's & PhD) studentships as well as ‘stand-alone' doctorates.
