AHRC Studentship (2012-13) 

About the award

Block Grant Partnerships (BGPs) are awards held by certain research organisations. A list of organisations holding BGPs, along with the subject areas in which they can offer studentships is available on the AHRC website.

There is an internal competition at Liverpool Hope for these awards. Applications forms can be found along these tabs and must be submitted by Wednesday 1st May, or the particular course closing date, whichever is earlier.

It is important that you send in your supporting documentation as soon as possible after you have applied for admission online, because your application will not be looked at until this is received.

Students must meet the admissions criteria of the University and the AHRC's eligibility criteria.

Available awards

To start September 2013: (one MA studentship)

  • MA Art History and Curating

Payment

  • Fully-funded full-time AHRC students receive a maintenance stipend at least equal to the AHRC minimum rate, tuition fees, and access to additional allowances as detailed below.
  • Fully-funded part-time AHRC students receive a pro-rata maintenance stipend at least equal to the AHRC minimum rate, part-time tuition fees, and access to additional allowances

Applications Process

Making an application 

Applicants for an AHRC funding award should have applied to Liverpool Hope University through the normal applications process for entry onto the programme concerned, and be in receipt of an offer of admission (unconditional or conditional) by the time of submitting the application for AHRC funding.

An applications form (parts one and two) should be completed and returned to the Faculty Research Officer. Submissions can be made through the team email account: artsfunding@hope.ac.uk or via post: 

Faculty Research Officer 

Room 054, Alexander Jones Building 

Liverpool Hope University

Taggart Avenue 

L16 9JD 

Timetable 

  • Wednesday 1 May 2013 – the full application (Parts I and II, completed by the applicant and the referees, respectively), along with supporting documents, must be submitted to the Faculty Research Officer, Mr Adam Waddingham
  • Monday 6 May 2013– the full application with supporting documents and endorsements shall be submitted to the relevant Departments
  • Mid May 2013 – Subject Panels meet
  • End of May 2013 – Dean of Arts and Humanities Confirms Awards (candidates notified of outcome)

Assessing an application 

Applications for AHRC funded awards will be assessed by one or more internal Subject Panels. The applicant (in consultation with the Department where the programme will be centred) will indicate the relevant AHRC subject on the application form. If the interdisciplinary nature of the study means it would be appropriate for more than one Panel to assess the application, there is space on the application form to indicate this. 

The Panel members are academics from Liverpool Hope’s Faculty of Arts and Humanities who are highly experienced in postgraduate admissions and education, including supervising and examining.

The Panel will agree a grade for each application that reflects an assessment of the entire application, including the information and evidence provided about the applicant's ability, aptitude, commitment and preparedness for the programme, and the quality of work that will be produced. The Panel will want to be assured that the Department will be able to support the particular requirements of the applicant and his/her proposed programme.

It is important that all who are involved in completing the application form do their best to provide as full and complete evidence as possible to enable the Subject Panel to make a fair judgement.

The referees' reports and evidence of previous results form an integral and important part of each application. Referees should address the questions asked of them as fully and as honestly as possible, commenting in detail on the applicant's work and his/her preparedness for the proposed programme. 

Each application will be judged on its own merits using the following criteria:

- quality of the applicant

- preparedness of the applicant – for the proposed project and future career

- quality and feasibility of the project (including ethical issues)

The Subject Panels will provisionally grade each application and will agree a short-list for further consideration by the Faculty Review Panel.  The Review Panel will consider all short-listed applications and will determine a list of award offers and ranked reserves.

Liverpool Hope University is committed to promoting equality and diversity in all of its practices and activities, including those relating to student admission and studentship nomination, and to working by the following principles: fairness; transparency; professionalism; accessibility; consistent application of policy and procedure.
