Tuition fees for research degrees (MA by Research, MPhil, PhD) are set by the University. Information regarding the fees for both Home/EU and Overseas students can be found through the following link. The Archaeology department charges fees at the lower (classroom-based) rate. In addition, there is advice about determing your fee status for international students, and a useful guide about living costs and your complete student budget.
UK and EU students wanting to study with us are eligible to apply for a Doctoral Loan to cover fees and living costs up to a total of £25000. Please get in touch asap to discuss with the Director of Postgrad Research (Steve Ashby) or your potential supervisor. Find out more.
The department often holds funded PhD studentships tied to particular projects or research or training networks. These opportunities will appear here as they become available:
ACCE NERC Doctoral Training Programme - Morpho-functional evolution of the mammalian scapula
Overseas students: The University usually offers a variety of full and partial scholarships for international students who pay fees at the overseas rate. Students must have applied for a place on a PhD at York by 31 January 2021. When applying students should add the “UoY Research Scholarship” tag at the point of formal application when asked how they intend to finance their studies. The level of funding available for 2021 has not yet been confirmed (November 2020).
Outside of the department and the university, there are other ways to fund your postgraduate study, although they tend to be limited. The university has a guide listing other funding sources and sites which aggregate scholarship opportunities (although note that these will cover both MA and PhD funding.)
For international students, we recommend that you research funding streams within your home country, as well as those within the UK.
