SOAS will receive no funding for doctoral grants from the Arts and Humanities Research Council from 2014, it has been revealed.
The School is now understood to be looking to secure funding from elsewhere to be able to continue to support doctoral projects.
A SOAS spokesperson said “SOAS is disappointed to have not received funding.”
“We are working with our partners to ensure that exciting new doctoral projects in the arts and humanities, and in non-European languages can go ahead. We plan to announce a set of fully funded SOAS studentships in these areas soon.”
Birkbeck will also lose its funding, while UCL, the School of Advanced Studies and KCL have been awarded a total of £18m by the Research Council.
