Regardless of whether you are a "home" applicant or an "international" applicant, you can apply for a studentship. However, there is a cap on numbers, as only up to 30% of studentship awards can be made to international applicants.
To be classed as a home student, you must meet the following criteria:
- be a UK national (meeting residency requirements), or
- have settled status, or
- have pre-settled status (meeting residency requirements), or
- have indefinite leave to remain or enter
If you do not meet the criteria above, you are classed as an international student. Further guidance on residential eligibility is provided in the UKRI Guidance
Applicants will hold an undergraduate degree, and will normally have a Master’s degree, or be studying for one. However, CHASE also welcomes applications from candidates with sustained experience beyond their undergraduate degree level that is specifically relevant to their proposed research topic.
CHASE has produced an informative online application guidance - CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership.
PhD Studentships are available on a full-time or part-time basis. We strongly encourage you to contact the School or Department you wish to apply to at the earliest opportunity in order to discuss your research proposal and potential supervision arrangements.
This is particularly important in order to give supervisors enough time to assist in the development of your application to ensure the best chance of success. Please note that you will need to discuss your application with the department to which you are applying for a place of study. The department will provide you with an access code for you to commence the application process.
