The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Swansea University is pleased to offer a scholarship for a full-time doctoral study, commencing in January 2024.
This scholarship 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.
The scholarship is offered for a maximum period of three years; students are expected to submit their theses within this timescale.
Applicants should be aware that department-based shortlisting panels are expected to take place in early December 2023. Please note that shortlisting panels may contact candidates within this period. Interviews are expected to take place in early December 2023.
Successful candidates will work with an experienced, forward-thinking supervisory team and join a strong existing cohort of doctoral students. They will participate in research and training activities embedded in our research centres and groups, which are sites of internationally-recognised, multi-disciplinary research. We also welcome applications in related research areas.
Candidates must have attained, or must be expected to attain, a first-class honours degree and/or a distinction at master’s level.
If you are eligible to apply for the scholarship (i.e. a student who is eligible to pay the UK rate of tuition fees) but do not hold a UK degree, you can check our comparison entry requirements (see country specific qualifications). Please note that you may need to provide evidence of your English Language proficiency.
Due to funding restrictions, this scholarship is open to applicants eligible to pay tuition fees at the UK rate only, as defined by UKCISA regulations.
