Fully Funded Doctoral Studentships – Creative Multilingualism
The Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages at the University of Oxford is delighted to invite applications for 3 fully-funded D.Phil. (Oxford’s Ph.D.) studentships tenable from 1st October 2017. These studentships are offered in association with the AHRC-funded Creative Multilingualism programme.
The Faculty is one of the leading centres for the study of European languages, literature, and culture world-wide, offering expertise in the entire chronological range from the earliest times to the present day, and with specialists in film studies, cultural studies, history of the book, and cultural history as well as languages and literatures. The Faculty offers expertise in Celtic, French, German, Italian, Modern Greek, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Polish and Czech, as well as in a range of other languages spoken in Europe.
We are particularly interested in receiving applications from candidates proposing to work in the following areas, although applications that take forward the research of the programme in other ways will also be considered:
Languages in the Creative Economy – especially Russian theatre or Russian opera
The studentships are for three years and are open to students of any nationality. Each studentship will cover University and College fees with a stipend equivalent to the Research Councils UK national minimum stipend (£14,057 in 2015). Candidates will be expected to have completed a Master’s degree by the time they take up the studentship and should not yet have formally commenced a doctoral project.
How to apply
Candidates who wish to be considered for one of the studentships on the Creative Multilingualism programme must submit an application to the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages AND an email to the Creative Multilingualism programme.
1. Submit an application for the D.Phil. in Medieval and Modern Languages
Applications should be made through the University Graduate Admissions Office. Full details of how to apply can be found on the main University website at
Candidates for all degrees must be accepted by both the Board of the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages and by a College or Permanent Private Hall. You may indicate a preference in your application for a particular College or Permanent Private Hall, but this does not guarantee acceptance by that College or Hall.
Your application will be considered by the Faculty in the usual way, and you must be offered a place by the Faculty in order to be eligible for a studentship.
If you submitted an application for the November deadline for the D.Phil. in Medieval and Modern Languages you are still eligible to apply for the Creative Multilingualism D.Phil. Studentships.
2. Send the Creative Multilingualism Team your Research Proposal
Email your research proposal to email@example.com to let us know that you wish to be considered for a studentship.
You can either send us a copy of the research proposal included in your application for the D.Phil. in Medieval and Modern Languages, or send us a different proposal related specifically to Creative Multilingualism.
If you send a different proposal, we will assume that you only wish to undertake the project related to Creative Multilingualism if your studentship application is successful. In either event, you may be offered a place to study even if your scholarship application is not successful (see flow chart below).
We are normally only able to consider applications where we have received your proposal by email. All emails will be acknowledged.
You must submit your application to the University Graduate Admissions Office and email your research proposal to the Creative Multilingualism team by midnight on Friday 20th January 2017.
Enquiries about application to the Faculty may be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Enquiries about the Creative Multilingualism programme should be sent to email@example.com
Applying to the University of Oxford for other awards
An application for a studentship on the Creative Multilingualism programme does not preclude applications for other studentships awarded by the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages or another part of the University. If you are offered a studentship on the Creative Multilingualism programme, you will be expected to notify acceptance within one week and in such a case withdraw with immediate effect from consideration for other awards.
