Application Process

  1. First complete the “Supervisor-led Student Recruitment Pre-Application Questions” section. This will let you and SGSSS know if you are eligible to apply and/or if you are a home or international student. See our student eligibility webpage here, as only a maximum of 30% of available studentships may be awarded to international applicants. **APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED TO INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS**
  2. Next, complete the “Supervisor-led Student Recruitment Applicant Information” section. This is where you will input some basic information about yourself, e.g. award length and if you want to study full or part-time etc.
  3. Next, complete the “References” section by inputting the contact details for two referees. SGSSS will contact your referees automatically to request that they provide a reference for you. Please make sure you review the full guidance provided within this section before you submit your referees' contact details. Please note, while the deadline for applications is 4pm (BST) on 7th July, referees will have until 4pm (BST) on 14th July to submit references.

Successful applicants will be invited to submit an application directly to the host institution (by the host institution) once the studentships have been awarded, however applicants should check the institutional application process with the relevant institution directly. 

Shortlisting and Interviews: 

  1. Once the studentship lead supervisor has reviewed your application you will be notified if you have been shortlisted for interview, or not (via email). Please note, each studentship has its own shortlisting and interview deadline dates (please review the relevant studentship advert for details here).
