PhD Studentship

Birmingham School of Art and Tate Liverpool Partnership PhD Studentship for 2018

As part of the generous Gertrude Aston Bowater bequest to Birmingham School of Art and our exciting partnership with Tate Liverpool, the School of Art is delighted to offer a funded full-time PhD studentship starting in September 2018.

This PhD award will be under our “PhD Classic” funding model, which provides a tax-free doctoral stipend at RCUK rates (£14,777 for 2018-19) for three years and a Home/EU fees waiver (£4,260 for 2018-19) for three years.

Through our partnership the School of Art organises many events and opportunities for all of its students and staff to work with Tate Liverpool on art production, curating, learning and research projects. Candidates for these awards will be expected to write a short statement explaining how they would actively make use of the opportunity to work with staff and resources at Tate Liverpool while studying for their PhD in the School of Art.

Candidates must:

  1. Apply through the standard BCU online application process for a PhD via the Art and Design PhD course page.
  2. Submit an application for the Gertrude Aston Bowater PhD Award by midday (12 noon) on Monday 25 June using this GABB bursary application form.

Interviews will be held on Thursday 5 July 2018 at the School of Art, Margaret Street, Birmingham.
