Fees and funding

PhD scholarships and bursaries

We have an excellent track record of securing full funding for our postgraduate research students. Our students have also been successful in obtaining travel grants and short-term fellowships from a number of external organisations.

The most important schemes for potential History of Art students are:

  • AHRC Midlands4Cities Scholarships: these are open to UK and international students and provide 3.5 years of funding covering fees and a maintenance grant at UKRI rates. Full details of how to apply can be found on the Midlands4Cities website.
  • Chancellor's International Scholarships: these are open to international research students and cover international fees and a maintenance grant at UKRI rates. Full details can be found here.
  • Wolfson Postgraduate Awards: these are scholarships awarded to outstanding candidates in History, Literature and Languages, and offer £30,250 p.a. (at 2022-23 rates) to cover fees, maintenance, research and training costs. These are awarded through the Midlands4Cities competition and do not require a separate application.

Full information about scholarships and bursaries can be found on the Doctoral College's Scholarships and Funding pages.

IMPORTANT: The demand for scholarships significantly outweighs the supply, and the wording of your application is crucial. If you intend to apply for funding please contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Dr. Rosie Dias, for further advice.

The University also offers the Warwick Taught Masters Scholarship Scheme to support eligible students.

Full details can be found here.

Others sources of funding for Masters study may be available, subject to eligibility. Please check the University's PG Scholarships webpage.


Course fees 2022-23

Tuition fees are payable for each year of your course at the start of the academic year, or at the start of your course, if later. Fees will normally rise for each year of your course in line with inflation. They do not stay the same as the year in which you started. Course fees for 2023-24 are not yet available, but these are the fees for 2022-23.
