Applications are now being accepted for studentships commencing 2015-16


In association with the North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership (NWCDTP), Lancaster University invites applications from outstanding candidates for AHRC Doctoral Studentships for 2015-16 entry. The NWCDTP expects to make approximately fifty awards across the whole range of arts and humanities subjects. A small number of these are likely to be for Masters study by candidates who show exceptional potential for doctoral research.  


Applicants to Lancaster must be planning to study in one of the following NWCDTP-approved pathways (administering departments in brackets):

  • Art History (LICA)
  • Arts Management, Library and Museum Studies (LICA)
  • Chinese (Department of Linguistics & English Language)
  • Creative Writing (Department of English & Creative Writing)

  • Philosophy (Department of PPR)
  • Religious Studies (Department of PPR)
  • Translation Studies (Department of Linguistics & English Language)
  • Visual Arts: Arts and Design (LICA)

Students should normally have been offered a place at Lancaster prior to submitting their AHRC studentship application. However, AHRC studentship applications will be accepted from students who have already applied for a place at Lancaster. The deadline for applications to be admitted on a programme at Lancaster is 23 January 2015 at the latest. Applicants are strongly advised to liaise with prospective supervisors when completing the studentship application form.
As part of the NWCDTP, a very limited amount of Masters funding will be available to outstanding students planning to undertake a PhD following the completion of their Masters. The same deadline applies as for doctoral studentships.
Further information about the NWCDTP and the studentships on offer is available via the NWCDTP website, as are the application forms and guidance notes for both doctoral and Masters studentships. Please check that you meet the academic and residential eligibility criteria on page 2 of the guidance notes before applying. Applications should be made on the appropriate application form and should be sent to fass-pg@lancaster.ac.uk.
AHRC details of eligibility and the different kinds of studentship funding on offer can be found on the AHRC website.
The deadline for applications for 2015-16 is 5.00 pm GMT on 13 February 2015.
