The University of Edinburgh, UK will offer 30 scholarships for PhD Research Programme in any field of study offered by the University for the 2019-2020 academic session to be pursued at the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom. The awards target international students.
Up to 30 scholarships will be awarded.
Each scholarship covers the difference between the tuition fee for a UK/EU graduate student and that chargeable to an overseas graduate student. The awards do not cover maintenance expenses.
Subject to satisfactory progress, the awards are tenable for up to three years.
The awards are open to overseas nationals commencing a PhD in any field of study in 2019-2020.
Applicants must be liable to pay tuition fees at the rate applicable to overseas students and must have already applied for admission to a full-time PhD research programme of study.
Applicants must be of outstanding academic merit and research potential. Although candidates with an upper second class honours Bachelor’s degree (or the overseas equivalent) can be considered, in order to be competitive you should really have a first class Bachelor’s degree supplemented by an excellent Master’s degree.
The University of Edinburgh will not generally consider candidates who have already obtained a PhD, or formal equivalent, as a result of direct research training.
Students already on a PhD programme cannot be considered for these awards.
Please also note that if you have applied for consecutive registration where you will start your Masters programme of study in 2019 and your PhD the following year in 2020, that you will not be eligible to apply for an award in 2019.
Edinburgh Global Research Scholarships cannot be held concurrently with fully-funded scholarships such as a Commonwealth Scholarship, or a Marshall Scholarship.
