PHD STUDENTSHIPS APPLICATION FORM

Please read the guidance notes below before completing this form.

1) About the award

      The award is for full time postgraduate PhD research students only;
      The award will cover all tuition fees whether at the Home/EU rate or the
       overseas rate. It is therefore open to both UK and overseas applicants. In
       addition, the recipient will receive an annual maintenance grant.
      Only applicants who have completed the online application process to the
       PhD programme prior to the funding submission deadline will be considered
       for funding. Find out how to apply for the PhD programme via our web-page:
       http://www.law.qmul.ac.uk/postgraduate/phd/apply/index.html
      Applicants should be aware that the School of Law PhD programme has
       various entrance requirements which applicants are expected to meet,
       including academic performance requirements relating to previously taken
       taught postgraduate degrees. For applicants applying for a studentship jointly
       provided by another School within the University, a postgraduate degree in a
       topic relating to the specific subject area outlined for the award is required.
      The award is renewable over three years of study while in full time enrolment,
       subject to satisfactory annual progress reports;
      At the end of the three years, research students sometimes need further time
       to complete their research and thesis. This is known as ‘writing up’ time.
       Students only move to writing up when their supervisor confirms that the
       student has submitted a satisfactory first full draft of the entire thesis for the
       supervisor’s review and the Director of Graduate Studies is satisfied that the
       student can complete within the year. The writing-up period does not attract
       full tuition fees, although a reduced writing up fee may be payable. A student
       in writing up is responsible for his/her own living costs as well as for any
       writing up fee
      The award is for new applicants looking to enrol (and thus commence their
       doctoral studies) in January 2013. Therefore, existing PhD students who
       have already enrolled prior to January are not eligible to apply for the award.
      The Studentship is awarded on the basis of academic excellence and
       financial need. The application process for these awards is highly competitive.
      If you have any queries relating to the funding application process, please e-
       mail the School of Law PhD Admissions Administrator, Mr G Skehan, at
       g.skehan@qmul.ac.uk

The aim of the project, which will be jointly supervised by Prof. Michael Lobban in the
Law Department and Dr. Amanda Bevan at The National Archives, is to explore the
structure, working and business of the court in the era in which Charles Dickens
wrote Bleak House. The student will be given in-depth training in the court records at
The National Archives, as well as general academic supervision at Queen Mary. The
studentship is fully funded, providing an annual maintenance grant and covering
payment of tuition fees at home/EU or overseas rates. Applicants who hold a
postgraduate degree in law or history are welcome to apply, but must meet the
School of Law's PhD programme academic entrance criteria (in terms of the required
marks or grades).

Any informal inquiries about the studentship can be directed to Michael Lobban
(m.j.lobban@qmul.ac.uk).

3) Deadline

The deadline for Studentship applications to the School of Law is Monday 12th
November 2012. You must have completed both the main PhD application
process, including the submission of all required supporting documentation, along
with your studentship application form by this date.

4) Important Information About Applying

Please note applicants for funding will only be considered when accompanied by a
full application to the PhD programme. This is because:

1. Many of the documents submitted with the main application, including the final
research proposal, will be reviewed by the funding board when the final decision is
made and
2. The School of Law will need to ascertain prior to the funding board decision if it is
able to offer an applicant PhD supervision.
