PhD Bursary Scholarships, University of Huddersfield, UK

Bursary scholarships within the school of Human and Health Sciences open to competitive application for September 2018


A new opportunity is available for four outstanding doctoral candidates to develop their careers as researchers within the School of Human and Health Sciences at Huddersfield University. We are highly collaborative, working closely with others to tackle real-world problems for health and society. Postgraduate research students are an integral part of our research community. Working closely with our leading research centres they play an important role in helping us achieve our shared aspirations.

Huddersfield University has a growing research reputation and is also a TEF Gold and multiple award-winning institution.  Our postgraduate research community has expanded considerably in recent years and we would now like to attract further doctoral researchers of excellent potential with the offer of four scholarships.  These comprise bursaries with full fee waivers, and there is the possibility of further fee waiver only Scholarships for impressive candidates.  All postgraduate researchers in our School benefit from skilled supervision by experienced and enthusiastic researchers and a comprehensive programme of training in research methods and researcher development.

Three of our bursaries are intended to supplement the new UK doctoral loan and are therefore set at £6,000 per annum over three years.

For all three scholarships, tuition fees (Home/EU rates only) will be waived for the three years during which the bursary is received and, if necessary, for a writing-up year. Overseas applicants will be required to cover the annual difference between Home/EU and the overseas tuition fee rates (for 2018/19 this difference is £9,835 per annum).

The projects relevant to the SEPEX community are listed here, but other topics are available and can be found on the call page.
