Scholarships for PhD studentships are available at London South Bank University for April 2020 admission.

A new scholarship scheme

The School of the Built Environment and Architecture (SBEA) at the London South Bank University (LSBU) is one of the largest schools in its field in the UK. SBEA has recently sharpened its research focus. It has two research centres on: Civil and Building Services Engineering, and Integrated Delivery of the Built Environment; and three research groups on: Acoustics; Architectural Design; and Digital and Robotic Architecture. Its aim is to pursue world-leading research which has impact on national policies and governance, on practices in industry, and on the wellbeing of society.

The school is launching the LSBU-SBEA Doctoral Scholarship Programme which offers a number of scholarships for Ph.D. studentships.
