The School of Modern Languages and Cultures at Warwick University invites applications for doctoral study commencing in September 2019. The following financial support will be available on a competitive basis for exceptional candidates and projects:

  • AHRC studentships, as part of the Midlands4Cities (M4C) Doctoral Training Partnership for Home and EU applicants, covering maintenance and full tuition fees over 3.5 years. M4C brings together eight leading universities across the Midlands to support the professional and personal development of the next generation of arts and humanities doctoral researchers. M4C is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, University of Warwick, Coventry University, University of Leicester, De Montfort University, Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.
  • Wolfson Postgraduate Scholarships for Home/EU applicants, covering maintenance and full tuition fees over 3 years;

  • EU Chancellor’s Scholarships, for EU applicants, covering maintenance and full tuition fees over 3.5 years;
  • School of Modern Languages and Cultures Doctoral Fellowships, for Home/EU applicants, covering maintenance at RCUK rates and full tuition fees over 3 years.

The School will select outstanding candidates to nominate for these award competitions. To allow sufficient time for us to consider your application and to work with you to develop it prior to the final closing dates for submission of written materials (early in 2019) we ask that you make contact with us as soon as you can and before 1st December 2018.

For more details on these and other Warwick University funding schemes see here.

Applicants for AHRC awards whom we intend to nominate for the M4C Doctoral Training Partnership competition will be required to attend an in-person or Skype interview in week commencing 14 January 2019. Please note that although, formally, M4C awards to non-UK EU candidates will only cover fees, internal consortium arrangements are expected to enable full fees + maintenance to be awarded to non-UK EU candidates.
