PhD Studentships 2016-17

Future Research Leaders

As part of our ambitious strategy for research, innovation and knowledge exchange, Bishop Grosseteste University is pleased to announce our second round of PhD studentships in our ‘Future Research Leaders’ programme. We are offering up to six full time studentships in History and Education to commence in Summer 2017. The projects build on our successes in REF2014 which demonstrated world leading research across our submissions, and align with our strategic focus on interdisciplinary research which adheres to the principles of open data. 

Successful candidates will receive a bursary of £14,000 per year plus tuition fees for up to four years to study at BGU. The PhD is awarded by the University of Leicester under our validation partnership.

We are seeking applications from high quality UK and EU candidates for the projects listed below. The minimum entry requirement is an upper second class honours degree, or an equivalent overseas qualification.

The closing date for applications is 17 February 2017.
