Science and Technology Graduate School Scholarships

For the academic year 2011-2012, the Science and Technology Graduate School is offering five Overseas Master's Scholarships and Eight PhD Scholarships.

Candidates are put forward by the departments where they wish to undertake their studies. So, in order to qualify, candidates must have their applications submitted in time for the various deadlines below.

Overseas Master's Scholarships

There will be five scholarships offered by the Science and Technology Graduate School. The scholarships are for self-financed overseas students. There will be an open competitive process whereby all self-financed overseas students, who have accepted an offer by the 28th of February 2011, will be automatically considered for the award. To qualify students must have an unconditional offer of study. Each department will nominate two candidates by the 11th of March 2011, who will then be assessed by the awards committee.

PhD Scholarships

The Science and Technology Graduate School is offering eight PhD Scholarships from the academic year 2011-2012. The scholarships are for full-time study over three years. Cases are submitted by departments where the PhD candidate will be based. In Phase I, departments make a case to receive one of four pre-allocated scholarships, subsequent to which successful departments will be able to nominate qualified candidates for these pre-allocated scholarships. The remaining scholarships (including any that remain unfilled from the pre-allocated pool) will be available to all departments in an open competition. Up to three students can be nominated for an open scholarship by a department.
