Staffordshire University to offer 30 full-time research studentships
Staffordshire University funded full-time research studentships: PhD students at Staffordshire University are now eligible for up to 30 full and part funded, full-time studentships, to be offered across three new Research Institutes. The studentships are part of the UK-based University’s new research initiative to promote the three Research Institutes – the Institute for Individual and Cultural Wellbeing, the Institute for Economic and Societal Wellbeing and the Institute for Technological and Environmental Wellbeing. International students, apart from students from the UK and the EU, can apply for these studentships.
Selected applicants will receive a fee waiver commensurate to the value of Home/EU student PhD fees. There are also special provisions under which successful applicants will be granted an additional full tax-free stipend of Â£14,296 or a partial stipend of Â£5,000 for three years, subject to satisfactory progress.
To be eligible for the studentships, applicants need to:
Hold UK-equivalent second-class honors degree, or
Have Masters level qualification in a relevant discipline
Documents to be submitted:
Personal statement. Applicants must highlight their research skills, experience and why they want to do a PhD (500 words max)
Essay outlining the proposed research (500 words max)
Application deadline: 30 September 2016
Each of the three Research institutes has its own research centres and is focused on wellbeing. The Institute for Individual and Cultural Wellbeing, for example, concentrates its research on health, happiness, beauty and the functionality of one’s surroundings and performance to enhance human wellbeing.
