Arts & Humanities Research Council Studentships


The London Arts & Humanities Partnership (LAHP) is a Doctoral Training Partnership co-funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and eight Higher Education Institution (HEI) partners:

Please visit the London Arts & Humanities Partnership website for full details of the studentships.

Eligibility criteria

LAHP welcomes applications:

  • From ‘home’ and ‘international’ (including EU) applicants (Please refer to ‘International Students‘);
  • Across all of LAHP’s subject areas and approaches in the arts & humanities, including for inter-disciplinary and practice-based research;
  • From those who have recently completed their Masters’ programmes and those with relevant professional and/or practitioner experience;
  • From those wishing to study on a full-time or part-time basis;
  • From applicants of all ages and backgrounds.


To be eligible for a LAHP open studentship in the forthcoming recruitment round you must either:

  • Have submitted an application to commence a programme of postgraduate study at a LAHP partner institution in the 2020/21 academic year (i.e. to start in October 2021), or
  • If you have already commenced doctoral study, you may apply for funding for the remainder of your study, providing that, at the start of the AHRC award (1st October 2021), you will have at least 50% of the period of study remaining (excluding the ‘writing-up period’).

Funding is available for both full-time and part-time students. Awards cannot normally be deferred. Successful candidates will be assumed to be starting their studies in October 2021 unless there are exceptional circumstances approved by LAHP and the HEI.

Application procedure

Please visit the LAHP website for details on the full application procedure.
