International Scholarships » University Funding » Education Scholarships

The Department is offering two scholarships of £10,000/year for 3 years to new applicants starting a PhD research degree in the Department of Political Science and International Studies.

The £10,000 scholarship comprises two parts:

  • A lump sum scholarship component of approximately £6500 per year
  • A component of approximately £3500 per year comprising income from Graduate Teaching Assistant duties.

    These duties will consist of four hours of teaching per week during term time, two office hours per week during term time, and examination and coursework marking duties.

    Specific rates of pay and conditions will be specified by contract.

    Applicants will be expected to apply to external sources of funding also; if they are successful, they will be expected to take up the external funding rather than the University of Birmingham scholarship.

    The scholarship competition is open to Home, EU and International students, studying on a full time basis.

    Existing Postgraduate Research students in the Department of Political Science and International Studies at the University of Birmingham are not eligible to apply.

    A scholarship committee comprising the Head of Department, Director of the Graduate School, Director of Postgraduate Research and the Research Director, will select the successful applicants.

    Applicants may be required to participate in a telephone interview.

    The decision of the committee cannot be appealed.

    Successful applicants will be informed in writing in mid-June.

    Deadline for Applications: 1 May

    Applications will be assessed against the following criteria:

  • academic merit of the proposal
  • academic qualifications
  • academic references
  • English language qualifications

    Any prior teaching experience will also be taken into account.
