The University of Westminster has a strong commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion and is keen on fostering a supportive research, learning and working environment.

In our selection of successful applications, we will be looking in particular for the following:
The studentships will consist of: A fee waiver and an annual stipend of £17,285 (20/21 rate, raising each year in line with UKRI increases) for three years.* This includes London weighting.
