Four PhD studentships for fees and maintenance in modern languages
The School of Modern Languages at the University of St Andrews is pleased to announce that four School scholarships will be available for four students beginning their Ph.D.s in 2009/10.
Three scholarships cover home fees for a UK or EU student, or a contribution of around £3,315 per annum towards overseas fees. A fourth scholarship will cover living expenses of £6,000 per annum. Candidates are expected to apply for funding to the AHRC, ORSAS or other appropriate bodies, too.
There is no separate application form for these scholarships. All new School of Modern Languages PhD applicants who have firmly accepted a place at St Andrews by 30 April 2009
(by returning the required firm acceptance form to PG Admissions) will be considered for an award.
St Andrews is a top-rated but friendly university, with excellent results in the Research Assessment Exercise 2008. It offers Ph.D. supervision in French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish, as well as a number of interdisciplinary areas.
Ph.D. dissertations can be written in English or in the language studied.
