Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funding

Goldsmiths is part of the CHASE AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership, which funds up to 56 doctoral studentships per year. 

If you're thinking about carrying out a research degree in the arts and humanities, you could be eligible to apply for a studentship covering fees, a maintenance allowance and research training. CHASE funding is available for degrees in this department.

To be considered, you need to have applied for a relevant research programme at Goldsmiths by the deadline set out here.

To find more about the funding and how to apply please visit our Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funding page.

Departmental Doctoral Research Bursaries

Departmental Doctoral Research Bursaries may be available. The bursaries are held for one year and are currently worth £5,000 each year – essentially, the bursaries act as tuition fee waivers.

The decision to whom to award a bursary is made by the Programme Director and team.

See the webpage for MPhil/PhD Art for full details on how to apply.

Graduate Trainee Tutorships

The Department may offer a number of one-year teaching assistantships for MPhil/PhD researchers. The full terms and conditions are available in the Department of Art Office and any appointments will be made in the summer term for the next academic year. Graduate Trainee Tutorships (GTTs) are subject to Department funding and thus we are unable to guarantee the number for the next year at the outset of the current academic year.

GTTs are offered on the basis of interviews with relevant Programme Directors. Successful applicants may be asked to teach and provide support on a number of different programmes in the Art Department.
