For anyone considering PhD study in translation, full bursaries are available at Aston University in the School of Languages and Social Sciences:
The School of Languages and Social Sciences at Aston University is offering TWO three-year fees-only bursaries to students who already have, or who will have completed at the latest by October 2009, a Masters degree in a relevant subject area. The bursaries will enable students to undertake research in any of the School's areas of academic endeavour, of which Translation Studies is one. The School's vibrant research culture and the rapidly expanding cohort of full-time research students provide a stimulating intellectual environment. The value of each bursary is sufficient to cover for three years the fees of a student who has a European Union passport.
In addition there is A THIRD bursary which will not only cover the fees of a European Union student but will also pay up to £5,000 per annum in return for 6 hours weekly of academic support work as requested by their Supervisor and/or Head of the subject area to which s/he is attached.
If you wish to apply for one of these bursaries, please complete and submit by midday on the 30th November 2009 an electronic PhD application form, which can be downloaded from the School's Research Degree website.
