 Funded PhD Programme (Students Worldwide)

About the Programme

The Department of Psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London invites applications for funded PhD studentships.

REF 2021 recognised the significant quality and impact of the Department’s research in society. Overall, 82% of our research and 100% of our research impact was rated at 4* and 3* level, meaning quality that is world-leading or internationally excellent. Research in the Department is structured around five main research groupings:

  1. The Cognition and Neuroscience Group
  2. The Developmental and Educational Science Group
  3. The Forensic and Clinical Science Group
  4. The Science of the Creative and Performing Arts Group
  5. The Social Processes and Personality Group

We pride ourselves in conducting cross-disciplinary research that challenges existing models of thought. The resources underpinning our ability to do this include state-of-the-art research facilities and a close relationship with the wider expertise in the arts and humanities that is present here at Goldsmiths. These resources are supplemented by our links (both in this country and overseas) with other universities and research groups.

We also work with a wide range of agencies and organisations in the public and private sectors; including hospitals, schools, prisons, charities, government bodies and commercial organisations. These links provide excellent opportunities for our staff and our students to become involved in collaborative research in many different settings. The department is also part of the ESRC funded South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS: which provides excellent postgraduate training throughout the South East.

A number of funded studentships are available through ESRC funding (via SeNSS) or Departmental Bursaries. The studentships cover tuition fees and stipend. International students are welcome to apply to both, though the Departmental Bursary will only cover domestic tuition fees. Please look at SeNSS website and Goldsmiths website for stipend and tuition fees. The SeNSS funding also covers 1+3 (MSc+PhD) ESRC studentships. If you are interested in applying for one of these studentships, please look at staff research interests and contact potential supervisors before applying:

You will be expected to agree on a research proposal with your proposed supervisor, who can also advise you on funding. Note that your application will not be considered without a statement of support from your proposed supervisor.

Applications should be made via the Goldsmiths Online Application Service (GOAS). A link to this application portal, as well as additional information regarding the application procedure, can be found here: Applicants must follow the application guidelines carefully, including submitting the department application form. Other materials, such as references, academic transcripts, and proof of English language test (for some international students), must be submitted by the application deadline.

Deadline for applications: 5th January 2024 (4pm GMT)

Interviews: Week commencing either 15th January or 22nd January, 2024

We accept applications for students intending to self-fund throughout the year and offer interviews for self-funded applicants on an ad hoc basis. Please contact potential supervisors and see the main website for more details
