UEL is making our Research Excellence PhD Studentships available across all our academic schools and hopes to welcome dynamic expressions of Interest that may seek to move across the disciplinary boundaries to innovate and stimulate new thinking.

Prior to making your application, you are encouraged to identify a UEL school within our three Colleges, and a supervisor which matches your area of interest. When submitting your expression of interest you must clearly state the School/s and/or Institutes you wish your study to be based in.

Applications are welcome from International applicants but, due to the nature of funding available, the studentship will only cover the Home/EU tuition fee each year. With this in mind, any successful International applicant would be required to cover the financial difference between the Home/EU and International tuition fee each year.
