PhD funding for 2016-17 through South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership

It's that time of year again.

The Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (SWW DTP) offers PhD scholarships for candidates from the UK or EU. For details of translation studies supervision available across the South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership, see

The University of Bristol is one of the eight member universities of the SWW DTP. Candidates wishing to apply for PhD study in the School of Modern Languages at the University of Bristol starting in 2016-17 are eligible to apply for DTP funding.

The School of Modern Languages at Bristol comprises the departments of French, German, Italian, Hispanic, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, and Russian and Czech, and a cross-departmental Translation Studies section. We also offer supervision for projects with Persian, Arabic and Georgian.
Applications can be made to the DTP from 30 November 2015.  The closing date for applications is 11 January 2016. Details of the application timetable are available at

If you are planning an application for doctoral research in Translation Studies at the University of Bristol, please contact Dr Carol O'Sullivan. Enquiries relating to projects on theatre and performance should be addressed to Dr Katja Krebs in the School of Arts. You can find more details of individual research specialisms in translation at Bristol at

The University of Bristol also expects to be in a position to offer a number of its own postgraduate research scholarships to outstanding applicants. Students who apply for a DTP scholarship based at Bristol, and who also wish to be considered for a University of Bristol scholarship, will need to make a separate application to the relevant PhD programme by 11 January 2016
