The University of Edinburgh is ready to offer 30 scholarships to 30 PhD students for their Research Programme in any field of study offered by the University for the 2019-2020 academic session.
The scholarship is available to International students and covers the difference between the tuition fee for a UK/EU graduate student and that chargeable to an overseas graduate student. The awards do not cover maintenance expenses.
Subject to satisfactory progress, the awards are tenable for up to three years.
To be eligible for this grant, applicants must be liable to pay tuition fees at the rate applicable to overseas students and must have already applied for admission to a full-time PhD research programme of study.
Applicants must be of outstanding academic merit and research potential. Although candidates with an upper second class honours Bachelor’s degree (or the overseas equivalent) can be considered, in order to be competitive you should really have a first class Bachelor’s degree supplemented by an excellent Master’s degree.
Other factors such as financial status, nationality and the proposed field of study are not taken into account.
Information on how to apply will be available at the official website soon. http://www.ed.ac.uk/schools-departments/student-funding/postgraduate/international/global/research
