Potential PhD Students

The funding landscape for PhD studies in the UK is quite complex. A comprehensive listing can be found here and advice can be provided by the Graduate School. International students are best advised to apply for the Chancellors International Scholarship Scheme. This is highly competitive so only the most able students should consider applying. Self-funding international students with appropriate experience and qualifications will also be considered. Home/EU students may receive support from the Research Councils (via DTG, CDT) or by funds provided by the University in partnership with other sponsors typically from industry.
