 Funded PhD Programme (UK Students Only)

About the Programme

The School of Journalism, Media and Culture (JOMEC) has a long-standing reputation as a world-leading centre for innovative teaching and research.

The School’s researchers engage with pressing contemporary issues and debates across journalism, media and culture bringing together theory and practice. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework assessment, JOMEC’s research was ranked 2nd in the UK in terms of its quality and impact.

JOMEC hosts the renowned biennial ‘Future of Journalism’ conference bringing together scholars and practitioners from around the world.

JOMEC’s purpose-built, state of the art facility is situated near local and national media. Our location next to BBC Cymru/Wales facilitates the building of strong industry links, boosting employability by providing access to major media organisations.

The University values diversity and equality at all levels and encourages applications from all sections of the community, irrespective of age, disability, sex, gender identity, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation in line with our commitment to supporting and promoting equality, diversity and inclusion. 


The scholarships programme is open to Black, Asian, or people of a minority ethnic heritage, including people of a mixed race/ethnic background, who are British nationals and domiciled in the UK. This includes those granted refugee status.

New for 2024, our inclusive scholarships programme will promote the benefits of SHAPE (Social Sciences, Humanities and the Arts for People and the Economy) researcher careers to more diverse communities.

We recognise the need to accelerate support, and enhance opportunities, for under-represented groups. This scholarship programme seeks to develop a more inclusive research community at Cardiff University and enable scholarship awardees to achieve their full potential and benefit from a postgraduate qualification and experience.

It also aims to make a difference to external communities and the experiences of people from minority or marginalised groups through the research projects it will fund.


There are 2 routes to apply for.

Pre-determined projects

First, we’re offering the opportunity to apply for a scholarship associated with one of 10 pre-determined projects on themes from mental health diagnostic injustices to deaf citizenship in Wales and diversity and inclusion in the creative industries.

Open competition

The second option is an open competition, where you can propose a research project of your own.

Further information and an application form can be found at this link.

Information available in Welsh on request.

Funding Notes

The scholarship will cover fees and provide a stipend in line with UKRI rates up to 4 years of funding. You’ll also be eligible for a research training and support grant in line with the mean grant provided across the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (£1300).
