How to apply
Formal applications for research degree study should be made online through the university's website. Please state clearly in the research information section of your application, the name of the PhD you wish to apply for as well as the name of your proposed supervisor. In the funding section, please state ‘School of Computing Funded Studentships’ as your sponsor.
If English is not your first language, you must provide evidence that you meet the University’s minimum English Language requirements.
We welcome scholarship applications from all suitably-qualified candidates, but UK black and minority ethnic (BME) researchers are currently under-represented in our Postgraduate Research community, and we would therefore particularly encourage applications from UK BME candidates. All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit.
