Programme description

All Museology staff supervise research students and welcome enquiries from prospective students in their respective research areas. Please visit The Centre for Museology  to find out more about our interests and expertise, and to find out what our current PhD students are working on.

If you are thinking of applying to do a research degree in the Centre for Museology, you should look at the individual web profiles of our members of staff and get in touch with us if you would like to discuss your ideas. It is in the nature of research that it is exploratory and breaks new ground, and we can help you judge what areas you might most profitably explore. 

Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2018, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • PhD (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): TBA
    International students (per annum): £18,000
  • PhD (part-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): TBA

Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.

Scholarships/sponsorships

British and EU students intending to take a research degree (MPhil or PhD) in the School are eligible to apply for support from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and may be eligible to apply to the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). AHRC and ESRC grants are competitive and provide payment of tuition fees and a maintenance stipend for UK students, and tuition fees (and a maintenance stipend, subject to eligibility criteria) for EU students. Please see the  School website  for further details.

The School also offers a limited number of bursaries and studentships on a competitive basis, details of which will be posted on the  School website  as soon as they are available.

Please note that whilst we do not have closing dates for programme applications, all funding competitions have a specified deadline for submitting the funding application form and a separate (earlier) deadline for submitting the online programme application form, both of which will be stated in the funding competition details on the School website
