Postgraduate Research Studentships in Music 2008-09

February 2008

The School of Music at Cardiff University is to offer a number of three-year PhD Studentships for next academic year. The studentships may be held under any of the three research programmes offered by the School of Music - Musicology (including Ethnomusicology), Performance and Composition - with one 'fees-only' studentship reserved for a student of composition.


One full studentship (tuition fees and maintenance at the approximate AHRC level) and a number of 'fees only' studentships are available. One of the 'fees only' studentships will be ring-fenced for a composer (courtesy of the David Wynne and Eirwen Thomas Bequest).


Applicants should have a good honours degree in Music (or be expecting to obtain one this year) and be a UK/EU citizen, or have been resident in the UK/EU for at least three years for reasons other than education. The studentships are tenable from September 2008.

The closing date for applications is Monday 30 June 2008.
