Requirements for University of Nottingham PhD Scholarship Qualification
- Applications for the grants are welcome from applicants in the UK and abroad, including those outside the EU, as long as they plan to begin campus-based PhD studies at the University of Nottingham at the beginning of the 2024–2025 academic year.
- The proposed PhD research of applicants must be in one or more of the following disciplines: languages, literature, or history (definitions of qualifying subject subjects).
- With the exception of fieldwork periods, applicants must remain in the UK for the duration of their studies and dwell reasonably close to the University of Newcastle. Candidates must have a proven track record of academic success which can be proven by a strong undergraduate record, often earning a first-class degree leading to a BA and either a master's or doctorate degree in a discipline related to their intended research. The applicant's master's degree must either be held at the time of application, completed by the time they start their PhD (even if the final examination board hasn't yet happened and the final outcome is unknown) or have professional experience and qualifications that are comparable to a Masters degree.
- The University of Nottingham is where applicants should have applied to study for a PhD before submitting their application for a Wolfson Scholarship. Nevertheless, receiving a formal offer at the time of application is not required.
