Frequently asked questions

I'm not a UK citizen, can I still apply for a funded PhD/EngD?

-90% of our funded places are available only to UK citizens, or EU residents who have been living in the UK for the past three years. Applicants who are not British citizens but have indefinite right to remain in the UK may be eligibile for academic funding, pending the status of residency. For guidance, please refer to the EPSRC webpage.

EngD places are not generally available to international candidates due to the work placement component of the programme.

The VEIV Centre may offer one funded place per year to an overseas candidate. Prospective international applicants must contact the VEIV Centre Manager Dr Jamie O'Brien prior to submitting a formal application.
