To be eligible to apply you must:
Meet the residency criteria set out by RCUK. Broadly, non-EU students are ineligible for awards & EU students are normally only eligible for support for fees only, paid at the UK rate.
Be prepared to live within a reasonable distance of the lead HEI. We define a reasonable distance as follows: a student ought if necessary to be able to travel to the University every day to work core hours (10am to 4pm).
The AHRC also expects that applicants to PhD programmes will normally hold, or be studying towards, a Masters qualification. If you are not in this position you may be able to use relevant professional experience to provide evidence of your ability to undertake independent research. See our Guidance for more details.
The following is taken from the RCUK Conditions of Research Council Training Grants document, p12.
“For purposes of residence requirements, the UK includes the United Kingdom & Islands (i.e. the Channel Islands & the Isle of Man).
44. To be eligible for a full award a student must have:
Settled status in the UK, meaning they have no restrictions on how long they can stay
Been ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the studentship. This means they must have been normally residing in the UK (apart from temporary or occasional absences)
Not been residing in the UK wholly or mainly for the purpose of full-time education. (This does not apply to UK or EU nationals).
45. To be eligible for a fees only award:
Students from EU countries other than the UK are generally eligible for a fees-only award. To be eligible for a fees-only award, a student must be ordinarily resident in a member state of the EU; in the same way as UK students must be ordinarily resident in the UK.
Note: These eligibility criteria are based on the Education (Fees & Awards) (England) Regulations 2007 & subsequent amendments.”
The UK Government confirmed on 1 December 2016 that Research Council studentships (including AHRC studentships awarded through the Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities) remain open to EU students starting courses in academic year 2017 to 2018, & that the funding support will cover the duration of their course, even if the UK leaves the EU.
