Swansea University is pleased to offer its fourth cohort of fully-funded Research Excellence Scholarships (SURES) for full-time doctoral study, commencing in October 2022.
This year, up to ten SURES awards are available at Swansea University. Each includes tuition fees and a stipend – reviewed annually at the UKRI standard rate – and an annual training allowance to support immersive training experiences such as engagement with industry and international collaborative opportunities.
Each scholarship is offered for a maximum period of three years; SURES students are expected to submit their theses within this timescale.

Applicants must be able to begin their course of study in October 2022. As a cohort-based programme, deferral to an alternative enrolment window within the academic year or to another academic year is not permissible.
English Language requirements: If applicable – IELTS 6.5 overall (with a score of at least 6.5 in each individual component) or equivalent that is recognised by Swansea University. Details on the Swansea University English Language entry policy can be found here.
Please note that both the degree and language proficiency entry requirements for SURES are higher than the baseline standard for entry that is stipulated for most of the PhD programmes at Swansea University.
Due to funding restrictions, this scholarship is – at this time – open solely to applicants who are eligible to pay tuition fees at the UK (United Kingdom) rate, as defined by UKCISA regulations.
