PhD scholarships for 2018 entry

Without quality researchers, there can be no quality research.

This is why the University of Hull invests into PhD scholarships to attract the best academic talent and further our research endeavours. Many projects are interdisciplinary and/or in collaboration with industry.

If you choose to carry out your postgraduate studies with us, you will become part of a vibrant, forward-thinking research community.

Our postgraduate students are a well-integrated and fundamental part of our research and contribute a great deal to the shaping of the Faculty. We pride ourselves on supporting them and ensuring that they achieve their full potential. In addition to their own research, all PhD students at the University of Hull also complete the Postgraduate Training Scheme.

ESRC White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership scholarships

The University of Hull is part of the ESRC White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership - a collaboration between the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, Bradford and Manchester Metropolitan University - and through this is able to offer a range of ESRC Postgraduate Scholarships. To be considered for this funding, you must submit an application for PhD study to the University of Hull by the 24th January (at 5 pm).

ESRC-funded postgraduates follow a 3-year PhD programme (known as a '+3') or a 4-year programme consisting of a Masters plus PhD (known as a '1+3'). Applicants are invited to submit a proposal that fits into one of the following interdisciplinary pathways.  Studentships have to be based in the subject area listed below for a given pathway, but can be co-supervised by a member of staff from a different disciplinary background. Applicants are strongly advised to a potential supervisor for support in designing their project. Please follow the appropriate link(s) for further information.
