School of Music and Fine Art are celebrating our inaugural year and are delighted to announce up to THREE fee waiver PhD scholarships (Home/EU rate) for PhD students.
The Scholarships are available to UK, EU and overseas students and will cover tuition fees (at the home/EU rate). They are offered for one year in the first instance, renewable for a maximum of three years subject to satisfactory academic performance.
In order to be eligible for these scholarships, applicants should apply for, and subsequently receive an offer of, a place at the University of Kent for one of the following PhD courses for September 2014 entry.
- Fine Art (Practice as Research)
- Music and Technology*
* Please note that new PhDs in Music (Research, Composition or Performance) are in the final stages of approval within the University and applicants for these areas are encouraged to apply for PhD Music and Technology with the understanding that they can then transfer onto the new PhDs upon arrival (subject to approval) where appropriate.
The scholarship competition is open to all doctoral research applicants who have applied or are applying to the School of Music and Fine Art for entry in the academic year starting September 2014.
