14 AHRC fully funded Doctoral and Master’s Awards Available in the College of Arts and Humanities


The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) has announced that Swansea University’s College of Arts and Humanities has been successful in obtaining a Block Grant Partnership: Capacity Building award which will provide fourteen funded studentships over the next three academic years.

In 2011-12 fully funded doctoral awards have been granted in English Language and Interpreting and Translation and master’s awards in Celtic Studies, Film and Television Studies and History.

In 2012-13 fully funded doctoral awards have been granted in Celtic Studies, Film and Television Studies and History and master’s awards in History, Creative Writing and Interpreting and Translation.

In 2013-14 a funded doctoral award has been made in History and one master’s award in Creative Writing.

The AHRC specifies that candidates are to be recruited by broad subject areas and not by a specific research title so recruitment will be under the subject areas stated above.

There are also opportunities for students to develop tailor made programmes of research that lead onto doctoral awards, these are classified as MA by Research awards.

For applicants looking to start in the next academic year the following awards are available: 

  • Three-year doctoral funding awards in English Language and Literature and in Interpreting and Translation.
  • One year Master’s awards in Celtic Studies, Film Studies and Television Studies, and History.

Head of the Research Institute for the Arts and Humanities (RIAH), Professor Chris Williams said: "We are delighted to have been successful in obtaining these awards in a very competitive environment. This is a thoroughly deserved endorsement of the quality of the research and postgraduate teaching available within the College of Arts and Humanities, and an important first step in building towards the next stage of bidding for an AHRC Block Grant Partnership."
