Natural Sciences PhD - 2020 Entry
This PhD offers an academic training route for graduates seeking to perform leading fundamental and technologically relevant research that transcends the traditional discipline boundaries by linking one or more other disciplines with chemistry. Options include Biology and Medicine, Computation, Engineering, Physics and subjects offered by the Lancaster Environment Centre.
A substantial amount of research addresses research questions that fall between the boundaries of traditional disciplines. Real-world problems require a multi-disciplinary approach, and research expertise at the interfaces of these disciplines is essential to delivering impactful solutions. A Natural Sciences PhD will capture and give expression to such research training.
We set our fees on an annual basis and the 2020/21 entry fees have not yet been set.
As a guide, our fees for 2019 were:
|Full Time (per year)||Part Time (per year)|
The University will not increase the Tuition Fee you are charged during the course of an academic year.
If you are studying on a programme of more than one year's duration, the tuition fees for subsequent years of your programme are likely to increase each year. The way in which continuing students' fee rates are determined varies according to an individual's 'fee status' as set out on our fees webpages.
What are tuition fees for?
Studying at a UK University means that you need to pay an annual fee for your tuition, which covers the costs associated with teaching, examinations, assessment and graduation.
The fee that you will be charged depends on whether you are considered to be a UK, EU or overseas student. Visiting students will be charged a pro-rata fee for periods of study less than a year.
Our annual tuition fee is set for a 12 month session, which usually runs from October to September the following year.
How does Lancaster set overseas tuition fees?
Overseas fees, alongside all other sources of income, allow the University to maintain its abilities across the range of activities and services. Each year the University's Finance Committee consider recommendations for increases to fees proposed for all categories of student and this takes into account a range of factors including projected cost inflation for the University, comparisons against other high-quality institutions and external financial factors such as projected exchange rate movements.
What support is available towards tuition fees?
Lancaster University's priority is to support every student in making the most of their education. Many of our students each year will be entitled to bursaries or scholarships to help with the cost of fees and/or living expenses. You can find out more about financial support, studentships, and awards for postgraduate study on our website.
