The Graduate School at the University of Westminster is very pleased to announce 10 new full PhD studentships funded by the Quintin Hogg Trust to begin in the academic year 2024–25 for a September or January start.
Applications are welcome to our Schools listed below. For any queries about any aspect of the application process or informal enquiries about where your research might fit within a School, please contact the relevant School PhD Coordinator (details below).
About the studentships
In our selection of successful applications, we will be looking in particular for the following:
- Research proposals that fit with one or more of the key themes of our research communities
- Research proposals with strong inter-disciplinary potential
- Applications which meet the University’s commitments to equality, diversity and inclusion
The studentships will consist of:
- a fee waiver (at home fee level) and an annual stipend of £20,622 (raising each year in line with UKRI increases) for three years.* This includes London weighting.
Applications are welcomed from international students. The difference between the home fee waiver and the fee for international students would need to be met by the student.
*Minimum full-time enrolment before submission is 33 months. Fee waivers are in place for the three-year studentship. Following that there is a six-month no-fee period for writing up. Should a doctoral research student not have submitted by the end of the no-fee period then a £1,500 fee is applicable.
