Eligibility

Residential criteria for an AHRC DTP studentship

Only students who meet UK or EU residential criteria are eligible for an AHRC DTP Studentship. 

Full award

Fees-only award

To be eligible for a full award you must have no restriction on how long you can stay in the UK and have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least three years prior to the start of the studentship (with some further constraint regarding residence for education).

In case you are from an EU state other than the UK you are generally eligible for a fees-only award. To be eligible for a fees-only award, you must be ordinarily resident in a member state of the EU; in the same way as UK students must be ordinarily resident in the UK.

 

 

Note: These eligibility criteria are based on the Education (Fees and Awards) (England) Regulations 2007 and subsequent amendments.

Academic criteria for an AHRC DTP studentship

You should normally have, or be studying for, a Master’s degree or similar postgraduate qualification. If you are studying for a Master’s degree or similar postgraduate qualification, you should have met all the course requirements prior to the start date of the studentship.

If you do not have experience of formal postgraduate study, you may be eligible for a studentship only if you can demonstrate evidence of sustained experience beyond undergraduate degree level that is specifically relevant to the proposed research topic, and could be considered equivalent to Master’s study.

For academic eligibility please check the admissions criteria for your course.

Subject criteria

Your research topic must be within the subject areas covered by the AHRC
