Postgraduate Studentships in Modern Greek Studies 2017-2018

Thanks to a generous grant from the A G Leventis Foundation, three postgraduate studentships are available for students who wish to pursue a full-time higher degree programme (MA by Research, MRes or PhD) in the fields of Modern Greek (including Cypriot) literature, language, history and culture.  Candidates should have a first class or upper second class degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject.  To apply for PhD, candidates should also have completed, or be completing, a master’s degree in a relevant subject.  Applicants will be asked to provide a detailed research proposal, two references and a transcript of qualifications.

Prospective candidates may contact Professor Dimitris Tziovas (email d.p.tziovas@bham.ac.uk) for advice on research topics for which supervision is available.  The MRes is a research degree with taught elements.  Further information on Modern Greek Studies at the University of Birmingham can be found at: http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/research/activity/bomgs/index.aspx

The studentships will cover University tuition fees for one year only (at the rate applicable to UK and EU students) and may be applied for annually subject to a satisfactory progress report.  Subsistence costs will not be covered.

Application forms may be downloaded from College of Arts & Law Graduate School website: http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/schools/calgs/index.aspx

You are strongly advised to send in your application to study as soon as possible applications for funding will not be considered without an application for study.
