The AHRC-aligned MRes Interdisciplinary Excellence Awards are open to UK/EU applicants who hold a first-class degree.
This competition is open for both student and supervisor-led projects.
- For supervisor-led awards, a student may be attached to the project at the point of application (students nominated on initial applications must meet the academic criterion of a first-class degree).
- For student-led awards: one or both supervisors may be named on the application, but are not required to have formally agreed to supervise. Students are advised to consult with prospective supervisors before applying.
Please direct any enquiries to Dr Sarah Edwards (university-wide lead for AHRC postgraduate research)
