The Theology Faculty intends, if a suitably qualified candidate can be found, to offer a one- or two-year studentship funded by the Hall-Houghton Trust, for an M.St. or M.Phil. in New Testament with a proposed dissertation on any aspect of the Greek New Testament, including its relation to the Old Testament in Greek or Hebrew. The studentship will be tenable from Michaelmas Term 2020, and will cover annual fees up to a total of 10,000 GBP together with an additional stipend for £2,500. The successful candidate will have a good first degree (undergraduate or graduate) in Theology, or will have completed all the elements of such a degree by September 2020. He or she will be expected to make, or to have made, an application for the M.St. or M.Phil. in the Faculty of Theology and Religion by Friday, 10 January 2020, and to have met the usual criteria for acceptance. The award will be held at the college which has accepted the candidate.
The successful candidate will pay the usual fees to college and university. The award is non-renewable, and will be terminated if matriculation for the M.St. or M.Phil. course is suspended for any reason.
The awarding committee will have access to candidates’ application materials submitted to the Faculty and therefore will not require additional documentation. Applicants should, however, ask their three referees to speak directly to their qualification for this studentship in the references submitted in support of the application for the M.St. or M.Phil.
