Doctoral Studentship Competition opens for 2015 entry

Funding for doctoral study is available by competition. The University of Bristol is a member of the Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded South West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (SW&W DTP) 

The DTP consortium, which consists of eight universities working cross-institutionally, will award more than 50 scholarships for students commencing doctoral research in 2015-16. Applications can be made to the DTP after 26 November 2014. Proposals of an interdisciplinary or comparative nature are especially, but not exclusively, welcome. The closing date for applications is 12 January 2015. If you wish to undertake doctoral study at the University of Bristol, and wish to be considered for a DTP scholarship, please make contact as soon as possible with the Subject Lead in your subject area or areas:

French: Professor Gino Raymond (

German: Professor Nils Langer (

Italian: Professor John Foot (

Hispanic, Portuguese and Latin American Studies: Professor Andrew Ginger (

Russian and Czech: Dr Ruth Coates (

Translation: Dr Carol O'Sullivan (

The University also expects to offer a number of its own postgraduate research scholarships to outstanding applicants. Students who apply for a DTP scholarship based at Bristol will also be automatically considered for a University of Bristol scholarship. An application for a place on the PhD programme at the University of Bristol can be made at any time, but only those applications received before 12 January 2015 will be considered for a UoB scholarship.  For more details of PGR funding opportunities at the University of Bristol see
