Funding for non-EU students
The Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences launched a scheme, known as Dean's Awards, in 2012 to fund a number of PhD studentships. These awards are open to all nationalities and research areas within the Faculty.
It is planned that these awards will be offered again in 2013. The awards will be are allocated to outstanding applicants seeking PhD training opportunities starting from September/October 2013. Based on the academic track-record of applicants, and evidence of research potential, the Faculty will select from across its 2013 applicants.
The Faculty PhD Studentships will cover tuition fees plus a £14,000 stipend/living allowance.
You can find out more about Dean's Awards on Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences website.
President's Doctoral Scholarship Awards
The University is offering a number of scholarships to outstanding applicants seeking PhD training opportunities starting from September 2013. You can find out more about our President's Awards on the Faculty President's Doctoral Scholar Awards page.
There is a wide variety of industrial funding available. Such funding may take the form of sponsorship by a company or a bursary for a specific research project. It is generally left up to the student to arrange his/her own industrial funding, although you should feel free to contact us to find out if there are any industrial sponsors or funded projects available. Even if you can only secure part funding from an industrial source you will be more likely to secure additional funds from the School to make up the difference.
Self-funding and external scholarships
Some students are able to cover some or all of their own funding, possibly from external scholarships. If you can partially fund your studies you will be more likely to secure additional funds from the School to make up the difference.
