  • 24 February 2017

Ulster University is inviting applications for Vice-Chancellor’s Research Scholarships (VCRS). These scholarships are open to international applicants wishing to undertake research degree programme.
Ulster University, officially the University of Ulster, is a multi-campus public university located in Northern Ireland. It is often referred to informally and unofficially as Ulster, or by the abbreviation UU.
English language proficiency is a vital skill whilst undertaking a research degree, applicants are therefore expected to provide evidence of their proficiency in English by way of an approved test.


To be eligible for an award
  • A candidate should hold or expect to hold by 15 August of the year of application, a first or

upper second-class Honours degree in a subject area closely related to the project to be undertaken. Other additional conditions may be set depending on the constraints of the discipline and are as advertised;
  • Applicants with up to one years current or previous registration for PhD at any institution may be considered for an award subject to the applicant providing evidence of good academic progress, formal release from all IP restrictions and ethical approval (if required). Three-year awards may be allocated to such applicants where they are taking up a new project at Ulster. In cases where the applicant is continuing with a project already commenced at Ulster, the duration of the award will be reduced by the full period of any previous registration.
