AHRC rates York excellent for postgraduate training

The AHRC has given the Archaeology Department a substantial number of PhD and Masters studentships to award over the next five years. The new AHRC Block Grant scheme has seen the University of York graded as an ‘Excellent’ institution in terms of its supervision and training provision for postgraduates. Archaeology has been rewarded with eight PhD studentships, five professional preparation masters awards and seven research preparation masters awards. These awards are in recognition of our excellent track record in post-graduate teaching and research degrees and will ensure the Department will continue to attract the very best postgraduate students from the UK. These awards will be supplemented by our own Departmental Scholarships which we award each year.

The application procedure is set out on our postgraduate pages.
