The University of Glasgow is pleased to offer up to 15 Carnegie-Caledonian PhD Scholarships. Scholarships are open to the UK and Non-UK/EU students to pursue PhD programme at the University of Glasgow for the academic year 2017-2018.
The University of Glasgow is the fourth-oldest university in the English-speaking world and one of Scotland’s four ancient universities.
If English is not student’s first language, they will be required to provide a language test before they can start their studies.
The following criteria must be met in order for applicants to be eligible for scholarship:
- A strong 1st Class Honours undergraduate degree from a Scottish university is a pre-requisite for consideration for the scholarship. Applicants should be at least achieving A1-A3 grades in their Honours years (University of Glasgow 22 point scale 20-22). Those with borderline 1st class degree results/dissertations or not holding a first class degree are not eligible to apply.
- Final year students of a Scottish university who expect to achieve a strong 1st Class Honours degree are eligible for nomination but will be withdrawn from the competition is they do not achieve a strong First. Nominees must also have a strong 1st class result in their Honours dissertation and demostrate consistency and/or increasing levels of achievements throughout their studies.
- Non-UK/EU domiciled students with a First-Class Honours undergraduate degree from a Scottish university are eligible to be nominated for a Scholarship, but the Trust will only cover the costs of equivalent home fees. The University is expected to waive the outstanding balance for overseas tuition fees. The prospective supervisor of an international student should verify with the relevant Graduate School that they are willing to waive additional fees.
