Research Studentships

The University of Westminster is internationally recognised for its research in a wide range of subject areas. We focus on excellence in research that makes a difference – benefitting academia, industry and professional practice.

Applicants should hold or expect to be awarded a 2.1 honours degree or above and preferably a Master's degree, and should, where relevant, demonstrate English language competence of at least IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.

Current studentships

The University of Westminster Graduate School is pleased to announce 22 new MPhil/PhD scholarships which will commence in September 2017.

The scholarships will fund an annual tax-free stipend of £16,000 plus payment of Home/EU tuition fees. Some subject areas will extend the funding to cover full Overseas tuition fees and, where applicable, this will be indicated within the subject area and/or project concerned.
