AHRC Midlands3Cities funding for UK/EU students

The University of Birmingham is part of the Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M3C DTP), which is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, De Montfort University, University of Leicester, Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham.

M3C is awarding up to 80 Arts and Humanities Research Council PhD studentships for UK/EU applicants for 2018 entry. Each studentship includes full research fees, a substantial maintenance grant and additional research training support.

This doctoral scheme provides studentships which enable students to undertake and complete campus-based doctoral programmes across the six M3C DTP partners. Studentships will normally be for up to three years for full-time study, or up to six years for part-time study.

Birmingham Law School is inviting applications from students whose research interests include:

  • Common Law, including Commercial Law
  • Comparative Law
  • Criminal Law and Criminology
  • EU Law
  • Human Rights
  • International Law
  • Jurisprudence/Philosophy of Law
  • Law Regulated Primarily by Statute (e.g. Family, Employment, Procedure)
  • Law Related to Property
  • Public Law

The deadline for M3C funding applications is Monday 15 January 2018, by which time students must have applied for a place to study and have ensured that two academic references are submitted to their home university on the correct M3C form.
