Part-time PhD bursary at UCLAN: Literacy acquisition through sign language in a distance learning environment



Applications are invited for a part-time MPhil/PhD tuition fee bursary in the International Centre for Sign Languages and Deaf Studies (iSLanDS). The iSLanDS Centre is a unique hub for the study of sign languages and deaf communities around the world, with the majority of our work focusing on developing countries. Virtually all our staff and students are Deaf sign language users, and they come from countries such as Turkey, India, Lebanon, Israel, and Uganda.
The bursary is tenable for up to 6 years (subject to satisfactory progress) with an expected commencement date of 1 October 2009.  The bursary will cover the cost of tuition fees at UK/EU rates plus project consumables. International applicants may apply but will be required to pay the difference between UK/EU and International fees.
