The University of Southampton invites applications for the 2015 Dean’s PhD Scholarships for International Students. Up to 5 new PhD Scholarships will be available every year.
The purpose of these awards is to attract outstanding international students to study for a PhD in FPSE.
Worth of Award

  • The award covers the tuition fee for 3.5 years and the students and/or their supervisors will be responsible for the stipend over the duration of the PhD. Demand for these scholarships is expected to be high and applications with partial tuition fee funding (such as the University funding for CSC sponsored PhD candidates) will have higher priority.
