The Bloomsbury Colleges are offering 10 PhD studentships available for PhD studies beginning in the academic year 2022/23.
The studentships will cover tuition fees (at the home fee rate) and a stipend (the stipend rate for 2022/23 is £19,668, based on UKRI rates) for up to 3 years.
The projects available encompass a wide range of topics and reflect the diversity of disciplines represented in the consortium. Each of these studentships will be supervised by two of the partner colleges as indicated after each studentship, with the lead college listed first. Successful students will be registered with the lead college in each case.
Applicants from outside the UK may apply for Bloomsbury Colleges Studentships (please note that only fees at the home rate will be covered). Please speak to the institutional administrative contact to discuss how the fee difference will be covered.
