  • Funded PhD Programme (Students Worldwide)
    Funded PhD Programme (Students Worldwide)

Profile Description

The current (2015) QS World University rankings confirms the status of National University Singapore (NUS) as one of the top universities in the world and number one in Asia. The Department of Geography, NUS, has for the past four years been ranked in the top ten Geography programmes globally in the same (QS) rankings.

Research in the Department of Geography, NUS, makes a major contribution to its international reputation, and falls into three major themes (Politics, Economy and Space; Social and Cultural Geographies; and Tropical Environmental Change), with researchers also working together in a fourth, crosscutting theme (Nature and Society). Graduate students have made a profound contribution to research activities in the Department; this contribution is projected to increase in coming years as the Department looks to build upon its reputation for world class research. Information on research in the Department, including sub-themes accommodated within the main research groupings and the interests of individual members of faculty and current graduate research students, can be accessed via: http://www.fas.nus.edu.sg/geog/research/

Fully funded PhD scholarships (fees and maintenance) of up to four years are currently available in the Department of Geography at NUS. Opportunities also exist to apply for additional funding to support fieldwork and laboratory costs, if relevant, to participate in international conferences and to contribute to the Department's teaching programmes. Graduate research students in the Department follow a semi-structured programme that involves a taught component in the first two years of registration.

For information on how to become a PhD student at one of the world's top universities in one of the most culturally diverse and technologically advanced cities in the world, at the centre of an extremely dynamic and exciting region, see: http://www.fas.nus.edu.sg/geog/graduates/

For advice on the application procedure, please contact in the first instance Ms Pauline Lee (email ). Pauline is the administrator in the Department with responsibility for providing support to the Graduate Studies programme in Geography.

Please note that there are two application deadlines each year: 1 November and 15 May (for entrance in, respectively, August and January of the year following the application deadline).
