Profile Description

The University of Chichester has one full Bursary and two Fees only bursaries for PhD study for 3 years available in the area of History and Politics.

The University of Chichester excelled in the UK-wide Research Excellence Framework (REF) with results announced in December 2014 revealing that 90% of our research is rated as internationally recognised or higher and 15% classified as ‘world-leading'.

Innovative proposals for PhD study are invited in a range of research areas (see list below). The strategic drive behind the studentships is to attract excellent students to conduct collaborative PhD projects with a third party organisation e.g. museum, gallery, charity, business. This might be with an organisation with which the department already collaborates (The Weald and Downland Museum, Pallant House Gallery, West Sussex Record Office; Comics Forum Website) or an organisation of their own choosing – national or international including archives, museums, political organizations or other relevant bodies.

The subject area of History and Politics will accept postgraduate research students in the following areas:

a) Medieval and Early modern political, religious, cultural and gender history (particularly, England and France);
b) Twentieth and Twenty First century Europe (British and French and Francophone focus; and/or Germany; Switzerland);
