Kingston University PhD Studentships

Kingston University - Graduate Research School

PhD Studentships for October 2024 start

Kingston University is pleased to invite applications for our competitive PhD Studentships.  We have established an international reputation for high quality, innovative research and our research students are a key part of this.

We are seeking to make a substantial investment in up to 20 new PhD studentships enrolling in late September 2024. These include targeted awards for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students and for Kingston University alumni.

We are looking for students with expertise that matches our areas of research excellence.

More information on our research areas can be found by following the faculty links below:

Deadline: Complete applications must be received by the end of day (GMT midnight), Wednesday 6 March 2024.

Funding available

There are three different levels of funding available for new students: fully funded, partially funded, and fees only, all at the home fee rate.

Full-time and Part-time applications are welcome.  Funding for part-time study will be pro rata at 50% of the full-time rate.

Fully-funded studentships

Fees and stipend: 3 years full-time or 6 years part-time. Home tuition fees only.

The full-time doctoral stipend for 2023/24 is £20,622 per year; levels are likely to rise slightly for the following years but have not yet been confirmed.

Applications for part-time study are welcomed and will receive pro-rata funding for both tuition fees and stipend.

International students are welcome to apply but must be able to cover the difference between home and international fees themselves.

Race Equality studentships

Fully-funded Studentships for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic applicants (Home students only)

We encourage applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students and have set aside a number of the fully-funded studentships listed above for applicants with these ethnic backgrounds. In addition to the funding, there will be a programme of support and mentoring available to you.

Successful applicants will be offered a place on our RISE Research Leadership Academy, which is designed to develop candidates' leadership skills within academia.

These awards are open to Home fee-paying students only. Read more about who is eligible for home fee status.
