PAYMENTS: full award covers fees and an annual, tax-free stipend of up to £9,490 (2011/12 rates, pro rata for part time). A partial award covers fees only.
DETAILS: to undertake a studio-based MFA or MPhil at Newcastle University, as preparation for future PhD study in fine art - for 2011 entry the university expects to have one studentship for the MPhil or MFA in Fine Art through this scheme. In exceptional circumstances, a qualification in another subject will be considered, but only when the applicant can demonstrate equivalent additional and relevant experience. Ideally, you should be able to show experience of engagement with and development of your practice beyond your degree. This could be in the form of exhibitions, curating or other relevant professional (paid or unpaid) experience. You should be able to demonstrate the ability to articulate ideas through both visual and written means, and have the ambition to identify a specific topic for future research. MPhil applicants should already have begun to identify a topic of research. This scheme supports students undertaking Master's courses that focus on advanced study and research training explicitly intended to provide a foundation for further research at doctoral level.. Please note that the MFA does not have a part-time route. To see if you would be eligible for a full or partial award, please see the AHRC's student eligibility criteria. You should meet the AHRC's student eligibility criteria and be intending to undertake a PhD in fine art at Newcastle University. Please note that if you require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK, you will not be eligible for this funding.
