The University of Reading is offering Anniversary PhD Scholarships for home/EU and international students. These scholarships are available for highly qualified applicants for research within science, life sciences and arts, humanities and social science.
The University of Reading is a public university located in Reading, Berkshire, United Kingdom. It was established in 1892 as University College, Reading and received its Royal Charter in 1926 from King George V. It was the only university to receive its charter between the two world wars and is, therefore, a red brick university.
Applicants whose first language is not English are usually required to provide evidence of proficiency in English at the higher level required by the University.
These awards are open to both Home/EU candidates and International candidates. International candidates should please note that they will need to fund the difference between Home/EU and International fees.
