School of Arts postgraduate student funding
The School of Arts has a limited fund available for help with conference expenses. If you are presenting a paper at a conference you can, with your supervisor’s support, apply to Carol Watts (Assistant Dean) for financial help, up to a maximum of £300 each academic year, claimed against expenses. Applications must be made before the date of the conference and forms are available from Catherine Catrix, Assistant School Manager.
Extraordinary research expenses
The School of Arts has a small fund for extraordinary research expenses; the expenses must be integral and crucial to the successful completion of the research project, and will cover the kinds of expenses which could not be foreseen at the outset of the research project. Such items might include travel to a unique archive, or translation costs, but would not normally include items such as books, word-processing or binding. Sums provided will normally be in the region of £100-£150. Students should contact Carol Watts, Assistant Dean, with a detailed breakdown of the costs involved, before the expenses are incurred. Students should also ask their supervisor(s) to contact Carol to certify that the research in question is integral and crucial to the student’s research project.
School-wide research student activities
The School of Arts will support, as far as it is able, School-wide research student activities (such as the Dandelion project). This might include paying for publicity, catering, computer resources, training events and so on. Students should contact Carol if they have projects for which support is sought. All funded events must be open to all research students in the School.
Research Skill Training for History of Arts Students (ReSKIN)
A programme of research skills training is offered collaboratively with other departments of History of Art within the University of London. This programme covers a wide range of skills and debates useful or necessary for research students. All new MPhil/PhD students, both full-time and part-time, are expected by the School to follow the programme and regularly to attend the seminars and groups organised for research students within the School.
