Studentship opportunities:
- The White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities (WRoCAH) is a Doctoral Training Partnership of the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. It is responsible for the distribution of AHRC-funded doctoral studentships for these universities and for the coordination of a doctoral training programme. WRoCAH is able to offer over 45 AHRC studentships per year to candidates with a place for doctoral study at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield or York. WRoCAH awards are available to UK and EU students.

Applicants must have received an offer of a place from an eligible School, Department or Centre and may only apply for funding at one of Leeds, Sheffield or York. The studentship application form and details of how to apply are only available from the WRoCAH website: http://wrocah.ac.uk/funding/prospective-students/

- You can also check other sources of funding on the Faculty of Arts and Humanities web pages here: https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/faculty/arts-and-humanities/graduate-school/funding. Information will shortly be available on the Faculty’s studentship competition, which is open to all prospective students for a limited number of awards. To apply for funding, applicants must already be holding an offer of admission from a department or school in the Faculty.

You are warmly invited to attend our next University Postgraduate Open Day on Wednesday, 21 November. At that time, you can also make arrangements to meet relevant staff and discuss your application. Further details may be found here: https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/postgraduate/visit/open-days
