Faculty PhD Top-Up Scheme
In addition to the minimum level of School support for PhD students (£500 over 3 years for full time students, pro-rata for part time / MPhil students), the Faculty of Humanities has also introduced a top-up fund to support exceptional requests for support above that level. This might be for one-off activities such as specialised training, the presentation of papers at overseas conferences, or visits to overseas archives. Applications should be made using the relevant form, which contains within it instructions on the process of decision-making. To download the form please click here.
TEEME is an international doctoral programme in early modern studies funded by the European Union. It is structured around a unique collaboration between university-based researchers in the Humanities and the cultural and creative sector in four EU countries (United Kingdom, Germany, Portugal, Czech Republic). The partnership will foster intercultural dialogue and disseminate the best research in history, literature and culture to the wider community.
