Brexit and PhD studentships


User: Ivana595 - 10 July 2020 12:53

Do EU students with settled status in UK will be able to apply for PhD studentships in 2021-22? I have already 2 degrees in UK and I have been living here for the past 6 years.

Very good question. Nobody knows the post-Brexit funding situation but if you get awarded a PhD the funding will probably not be taken away after Brexit. Most universities state the nationality requirements on the PhD application and if it says EU accepted you will be fine. If you want to apply after Brexit, we have no idea what is happening.

Actually I've just been told that EU students with settled and pre-settled status will be able to apply for PhD studentships in 2021-22 from the information centre of UK university, but thank you for your answer

This is a bit off topic but have you considered applying for British citizenship? You do not have to renounce your EU citizenship under the current rules.

User: Ivana595 - 11 July 2020 09:47

Yes I have considered that but since the majority of PhD studentships deadline are in January I won’t be able to receive the citizenship in time, but in the worst case scenario I will definetely apply

Then apply for citizenship today before tomorrow because it will facilitate several things after Brexit. There will be a lot of uncertainties for EU citizens living in the UK after Brexit even with permanent residence.

Yeah I agree I will apply as soon as possible. Thank you for the advice!

I think this mock game sums up how the UK got here quite eloquently.

Wouldn't that be drink every time your supervisor changes the project or you get rejected for a grant?

There is one for the Ph.D. itself.

I think they should be able to apply. The rules will change from 2021/22, and overseas students will be able to apply for UKRI funding.

Thanks Ian. This was probably the first document I got my hands on when I started my PhD :-p
