We are offering studentships for Home, EU and International students seeking to undertake full-time PhD study commencing in October 2016, with the following funding arrangements:
• Faculty PhD Scholarships each covering international or Home/EU fees, plus a maintenance allowance of £14,000 per annum (for three years, and subject to annual review of progress). NB. Full-time study only.
• Vice-Chancellor (VC) Awards worth up to £7,000 per year to either contribute to international fees or to cover Home/EU fees plus contribution towards living costs (for three years of study). The VC Awards are available for full- or part-time study (the latter calculated pro-rata).
To be eligible for consideration, the full application must be submitted by the submission deadline of 29 February 2016. This includes the standard application form, research proposal, CV, and other supporting documentation (transcripts, reference letters, IELTS certificates where necessary, etc., and for practice-based applicants a portfolio of work).
