We are the UK’s fastest-growing research university1 and consistently rank amongst the best in the UK2. We are looking for the brightest and best postgraduate researchers to continue with us on our journey.
We are excited to announce we have numerous fully-funded EPSRC PhD studentships available for 2020 entry. Successful applicants will benefit from sector-leading training and development with outstanding facilities and resources. The studentships are available to exceptional candidates and offer the opportunity to create a research proposal unique to you, aligned with our research specialisms.
Funded by the EPSRC, these studentships are available to applicants who ordinarily reside in the UK and are classed as UK/EU for tuition fee purposes. If you have not resided in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the studentship, you are not eligible for a maintenance allowance so you would need an alternative source of funding for living costs. To be eligible for fees-only funding you must be ordinarily resident in a member state of the EU. Information on EPSRC residency criteria.
International students interested in studying at the University of Exeter should search our funding database for alternative options.
The deadline for applications is 30th January 2020. You will need to submit your research proposal and supporting documents by this date in order to be eligible. Application is online via the theme pages on our website.
