All supporting documents (references and transcripts) must also be uploaded by 21 January 2021. Please consider this deadline when submitting your application and allow time to ensure all documents are submitted.
Please note no late applications will be accepted.
Applications for 2021/22 entry are now OPEN.
In order to apply for the Chancellor’s International Scholarships you must first apply for PhD admission. Once you have submitted your admissions application you will then receive an automated e-mail giving you your student ID number and instructions on registering your ITS applicant account, which you must complete. This can take up to 48 hours to come through. This username and password can then be used to apply for the scholarships. You do not need to have received an offer of study by the scholarship application deadline, just to have applied for admission.
All applicants should ensure they read the Guidance notes before submitting an application.
We strongly advise that all applicants read the guidance listed below before completing an application form.
Part of the application will be based on the PGR Ranking Criteria and so it is important you are familiar with this document.
Please note due to the volume of enquiries the Doctoral College is unable to send any application materials to potential applicants.
Results of the Chancellor's International Scholarship competition will be communicated through email by the end of March 2021.
Please do not contact the Doctoral College before this date to enquire about results.
