Awards are restricted to students meeting Home/EU residency criteria.
The main criteria are:
- Residential - UK nationals resident in the UK are normally eligible for a full award (EU nationals resident in the UK for the previous three years may also be eligible - see 'Eligibility of EU Citizens for Full Awards'). EU nationals resident in the EEA (wider than EU) are usually eligible for a fees-only award. Overseas applicants are normally not eligible.
- Academic – for a Masters award, a 2:1 (upper second class) honours UG degree will be expected to be achieved. For PhD study, successful completion of a Masters is also expected. Candidates with overseas qualifications should check that their qualification meets the AHRC expected standard, listed on the AHRC website below.
Note: Students who have obtained or expect to obtain a 'Masters-level' qualification, are not eligible for an AHRC Masters award. Students who have obtained a doctoral qualification are not eligible for AHRC support.
- Subject – your topic must be within the subject areas covered by the AHRC, your department will help you to assess this.
Before applying, consult the "AHRC Guide to Student Funding 2011" in particular pp35-36 (academic), p39 (previous Masters qualification), and pp61-65 (residential eligibility).
