The following criteria must be met in order for applicants to be eligible for the scholarship:
You can apply for this scholarship if you have been offered a place at Essex for a full-time PhD, starting in 2017-18.
MPhil and Masters by Dissertation courses are not eligible.
The scholarship includes:
A fee waiver equal to the Home/EU fee (international students will need to pay the balance of their fees)
A stipend of £12,000 per year
A training bursary of £480 per year
Proficiofunding, which can be used to ‘buy’ advanced skills training
If you’ve applied for a full-time SeNSS studentship starting in 2017-18, you’ll automatically be considered for our Essex Psychology Doctoral Scholarship and don’t need to complete a separate application form. However, you’re advised to read the terms and conditions of these awards and which departments are offering them.
University of Essex Doctoral scholarships don’t cover SeNSS 1+3 applications, but you’ll be considered for an Integrated PhD course if there is one appropriate for your studies. All successful Integrated PhD applicants would have to fund their first year.
