Posted on October 5, 2011


Thinking about getting a archaeology PhD in the UK? Wondering how you are going to pay for it? I can’t answer that for you but here is a break down of how other PhD students funded their studies between 2001-2007. The information is from the RAE.

Most people fund their own studies but the research councils fund quite a few. Not sure how well that is going to be in a few years with budget restrictions. No surprise to anyone in the UK but universities provide very little funding support. I was a bit surprised on how much overseas funding is provided. The US just made it so you can not use things like the NSF funding for non-US universities but it looks like not everyone has that rule.
