Funding for Doctoral Study at Royal Holloway

AHRC and College Postgraduate Studentships
School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures at Royal Holloway University of London.
French, German, Hispanic Studies and Italian and Comparative Literature and Culture

The School of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures at Royal Holloway is pleased to invite applications to its PhD programmes in Modern Languages (French, German, Hispanic Studies and Italian and Comparative Literature and Culture). You can find out more about the research environment and range of expertise we offer on our research pages.

Royal Holloway is the lead member of the TECHNE London and South-East Doctoral Training Partnership, which offers Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) awards for those commencing postgraduate study in September 2016. TECHNE comprises seven universities and is one of the 11 AHRC Doctoral Training Partnerships. TECHNE’s vision is to produce scholars who are highly motivated and prepared for academic, public or professional life. Its students will benefit from a diverse range of training workshops and opportunities to engage with partners in the arts and cultural sector.
Students may apply to TECHNE for a doctoral award by submitting a TECHNE application through Royal Holloway.  If you are interested in applying for a TECHNE award, the first step is to speak to a prospective supervisor or the Director of Graduate Studies. It is not possible to submit an application directly to TECHNE: you must apply through one of the member universities. Overseas students are not eligible for AHRC awards (although they may be considered for other College awards), and EU students are eligible for fees only.
There are around 50 awards per annum for students who are applying to undertake PhD study. Students who apply for a TECHNE award will be considered automatically for a College Scholarship.

For more information on any of these awards, or for postgraduate study more generally at Royal Holloway, write to the Director of Graduate Studies, Dr Sarah Wright.
