Leeds Doctoral Scholarships

There are a number of Leeds Doctoral Scholarships available for 2019 entry, which can be used with projects from across the Faculty.

To be eligible you must:

  • be a UK/EU or international fee paying applicant
  • have achieved at least a first class (1) honours degree or equivalent* at undergraduate level
  • meet the English language requirements of your programme of study if English is not your first language (UK/EU applicants – prior to or at registration; international applicants – by the relevant scholarship deadline)
  • not have already been awarded or be currently studying for a doctoral degree
  • not already be in receipt of a doctoral scholarship
  • have applied for a research degree and be in receipt of a student ID number

* Candidates with a lower mark in their undergraduate degree will be considered if they have or are expected to receive a distinction in a Masters programme relevant to their field of research, or if they can demonstrate relevant alternative experience (eg in industry or business, or for a practice-based PhD, in the creative arts).
