City University Doctoral Studentships, UK

Monday, January 14, 2013
Each year, City provides a number of fully-funded, full-time, three-year Doctoral Studentships to outstanding candidates as part of its ongoing investment in academic excellence.

  The university is offering up to 30 University Doctoral Studentshipsfor entry in 2013/14.


University Doctoral Studentships are available to both UK/EU and overseas fee-paying students who will be studying full-time. They can be held in any School of the University.
Applicants are assessed on the basis of their research excellence or demonstrable potential and the quality of their research proposal. Schools use assessmentcriteria (PDF) to help evaluate applications and you are advised to judge yourself against them before deciding whether to apply for a Studentship.
If you wish to be considered for a Studentship you should also discuss your proposal with the relevant School to establish whether you can be supported.

Scholarship value

A Doctoral Studentship provides:
  • an annual bursary (£16,000 in 2013/14 and expected to rise in line with inflation in subsequent years);
  • a full tuition fee waiver;
  • a one-off allowance of £1,000 which may be used across the three-year period of the studentship to support research needs such as specialist training, equipment or conference attendance.
Continuation of the award after the first year is subject to confirmation by the relevant School of satisfactory progress. Studentship holders are usually expected to undertake some form of teaching support activity as part of the bursary arrangements. This will be agreed with the School concerned. Training will be provided to support any teaching activity.

The University provides a broad research and enterprise development programme to support the development of research skills.
