Fully funded studentships for Home and EU students (tax free stipend of £13,590 in 2010-2011) are available for entry to our interdisciplinary PSIBS programme.
Eligibility: UK and EU students
Each year the Doctoral Training Centre is able to offer ten or more fully funded scholarships from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to UK students (tax free stipend £13,590 in 2010-2011). We are now considering scholarship applications for course entry in 2012. EU students are eligible for awards of tuition fees only but may also be eligible for stipend funding if they have studied or worked in the UK for at least 3 continuous years immediately prior to course entry.
All candidates are advised to refer to the EPSRC website to check their status and eligibility.
Non-EU students are not eligible for financial support from EPSRC but may be able to secure their own finance through overseas research scholarships, Commonwealth scholarships or their home governments. International students may also seek competitive scholarships from the University. Further details of these bursaries and scholarship awards are available from the Student Funding team.
International PSIBS applicants are particularly alerted to the availability of up to ten elite scholarships across the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University each year.
Chinese nationals may be eligible to apply for PhD scholarships available via contact with the China Scholarship Council. Up to six awards covering tuition fees, travel and living expenses for 3 years may be made across the University of Birmingham each year to candidates with outstanding academic qualifications, as part of the Birmingham Li Siguang PhD Scholarship scheme.
