Faculty of Arts and Humanities

King's College London

London Arts & Humanities Partnership (LAHP) has up to 80 studentships available to postgraduate students applying for a doctoral programme in arts and humanities at
• King’s College London
• School of Advanced Study (SAS)
• or University College London (UCL)

LAHP is a Doctoral Training Partnership in conjunction with UCL and SAS and is sponsored by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) - http://www.lahp.ac.uk/

Subject to availability, these awards will cover:
• Tuition fees for a maximum of three years at the Home/EU rate
• Annual maintenance grant or allowance (stipend) - £16,296 for 2016/17
• LAHP has a limited number of full awards (fees and stipend) for EU students designated `fees-only’ by the AHRC

Candidates should be aware that the LAHP studentship competition is a twin-track process, and they will need to apply
a. for a place of study on their chosen PhD programme at one of the LAHP partner institutions, and
b. to LAHP for an AHRC studentship
We’re sorry but applications cannot be accepted from students liable to pay fees at the international rate.

Studentships are open to current students as well as students starting their research in 2017.
If you have already started your doctoral study, you can still apply for funding for the rest of your study as long as you still have at least 50% of your study remaining at the start of September 2017.
