Kingston University Offering Post-grad Scholarships + 35 PhD Studentships
Kingston University has established an international reputation for high quality, innovative research – a reputation confirmed by the recent REF2014 results which show that the University has world-leading research across all its five faculties. Kingston is now offering 35 prestigious research studentships to students who wish to study for a full-time PhD beginning in 2015-16 (part-time studentships are not available). Funding is at Home/EU level for three years only.
We are looking for students with expertise that matches our areas of research excellence and studentships will be available across the five faculties. The 35 studentships are for October 2015 entry. You can find out more about the research areas of Landscape Architecture and Landscape + Urbanism from the Art, Design and Architecture Faculty website:
The studentship covers the Home/EU fee only (which is £3,996 for the academic year 2015/16), plus a maintenance stipend at £16,057, for three years only. International candidates selected for interview would need to demonstrate that they can fund the difference in fees for each year of registration, which is currently £9,004 for academic year 2015/16. Please note that tuition fees are liable for increase for each year of study.
In addition to the Phd studentship awards Kingston University is also providing Postgraduate Scholarships
In 2015/16 there are two schemes available to students progressing directly from an undergraduate course to a postgraduate course.
The Progression Scholarship offers a 25% discount on tuition fees to all Kingston University students who complete an undergraduate course in the summer of 2015 and commence a postgraduate course here in the 2015/16 academic year.
We also have 110 Postgrad Support Scheme (PGSS) awards of £10,000 available to eligible UK and EU students who complete an undergraduate course in the summer of 2015 and who commence a qualifying postgraduate course here in the 2015/16 academic year. A PGSS Award can be combined with a Progression Scholarship and any other University or Faculty scholarships. For full details click here.
