Queen Mary’s Doctoral College is awarding over £10million in studentships to support the most talented and ambitious new researchers. Successful applicants will receive generous studentships to cover fees and living costs in recognition of the vital role that they will play in Queen Mary's lively research community. Self-funded applicants are also welcome to apply for a PhD in any of the areas in which we can offer supervision.

Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) is part of the 24 strong Russell Group of elite research intensive universities that together attract well over two-thirds of all available research funding in the UK and account for the same proportion of the very best research (‘world-leading’) in the country. QMUL is ranked 9th in the UK for research quality (REF 2014) and in the top 1% of universities in the World (Times Higher Education World University Rankings).
