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 email@example.com) 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.iaa.bham.ac.uk/bomg/index.shtml
The studentships will cover University 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.
