PhD Funding Opportunities

phd fundingSome of you may be considering studying for a PhD after your Master’s. If so, our College is currently advertising a funding opportunity for Phd scholarships for international students. The full information is here: http://www2.le.ac.uk/research/degrees/funding/international-excellence

The key things to note are:

  • This is for international students only – i.e. non Home/EU.
  • It is for campus based study ONLY (not the PhD by DL).
  • It is a partial scholarship – £5,000 discount on fees over 3 years.

Similar opportunities may arise in the future if you are not due to complete your Master’s this year. Also, the Department generally offers annual funding opportunities for PhD students – it is worthwhile checking our website around Easter (or just before) each year.

If you are hoping to pursue a PhD at some point in the future with us or elsewhere, I’d also encourage you to monitor the websites of the main funders (ESCR, British Academy, AHRC etc.) – details on our website – http://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/criminology/pgstudy/pgresearch/researchfees). It might also be worth scoping funding opportunities through companies that might benefit from your research, through philanthropic organisations, or – depending on your nationality – through the EC (Erasmus) or Commonwealth – https://www.findaphd.com/funding/guides/erasmusmundus.aspx, http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/erasmus_mundus/funding/scholarships_students_academics_en.php and http://cscuk.dfid.gov.uk/apply/scholarships-developing-cw/.

Best wishes, Eleanor
