Studentship opportunities

Learn more about studentship opportunities at the Doctoral Academy.

How studentships work

A studentship will usually cover tuition fees for three years as well as pay the student a stipend for three years, paid monthly. The project area and sometimes the project itself will already be decided and you will need to submit your application by the set deadline.

Applications will be shortlisted for interview and following the interview, the successful candidate(s) will be awarded the studentship.

The Doctoral Academy is delighted to announce the availability of PhD studentships in the following colleges, which will be awarded to high-calibre graduates in the areas of research excellence detailed.

This includes if you are being sponsored by an organisation external to UWE Bristol such as your employer. You may also be eligible for the UK Government Postgraduate Doctoral Loan.
