Fully Funded Peterhouse Graduate Studentships in UK for International Students

 

Deadline: January 5, 2018

The new Peterhouse Graduate Studentships Competition is now available for Home/EU or overseas students to be taken up in October 2018. Students may be funded for a one-year MPhil on the condition that they intend to be candidates for the PhD, for which they will receive a maximum of three years funding.

Peterhouse is the oldest of the Cambridge colleges, founded by Hugo de Balsham, Bishop of Ely in 1284 and granted its charter by King Edward I. The College is a Registered Charity, no. 1137457. The “laudable design” of Hugo de Balsham, as expressed in the College’s founding instruments, was “to introduce scholars in the schools, who are to live together and study in the University of Cambridge; to dwell in the same College forever, and employ themselves with appropriate study, to the praise of God and the perpetual augmentation of the same university.”

Scholarship Description: 

Course Level: Studentships are available to pursue graduate degree (MPhil and Ph.D.) programme.

Study Subject: Studentships are awarded to learn any of the subjects offered by the university.

Scholarship Award: The value of each studentship will depend on whether students are in receipt of other grants. If a successful applicant has no funding from other sources, then their studentship will cover University and College fees plus maintenance at the same level as the Arts and Humanities Research Council awards (currently £14553 per year for doctoral students, and £10914 per year for MPhil students). This is what is meant by ‘full funding’.

Nationality: Home/EU or international students.

Number of Scholarships: Numbers not given.

Scholarship can be taken in the UK

Eligibility for the Scholarship: 

Eligible Countries: Home/EU or overseas students are eligible to apply.

Entrance Requirements: To be eligible for a Peterhouse studentship, applicants must be accepted as a graduate student by the University of Cambridge. They must, therefore, submit an application through the University’s Board of Graduate Studies, and they must meet whatever criteria are specified by the University and the department or faculty to which they apply. You need to make sure that the Faculty to which you apply also considers you for all University studentships for which you are eligible.  You can check how this is done by consulting the Graduate Admissions Tutor in the Faculty or on the Faculty’s website. Note that your application for a PPh.D.is made to the University and not to Peterhouse.  You can make your application for Peterhouse Graduate Studentships at the same time as your university application. Successful applicants must study at Peterhouse.

English Language Requirements: Applicants whose first language is not English are usually required to provide evidence of proficiency in English at the higher level required by the University.
