These will have the value equivalent to 25% of the University’s International student fee for three years. Candidates should have secured an offer of a place to study for a PhD in the Faculty, and either have the remaining funding in place from employer sponsorship or a scholarship awarding body or be making an application which will cover these costs. The majority of scholarships will be awarded to students from outside of the EU.
In the first instance, applicants should contact potential supervisors to discuss research projects, enclosing a copy of their CV. Our web pages list current PhD opportunities and areas of research in the Schools of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computing, Environmental Sciences, Mathematics and Pharmacy.
