Bloomsbury Colleges PhD Studentships 2018-19

The Bloomsbury Colleges group was set up in 2004 and now consists of the following four colleges of the University of London: Birkbeck, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, the Royal Veterinary College, and the School of Oriental and African Studies.  The School of Pharmacy was a founding member before becoming the UCL School of Pharmacy in 2012, as was the Institute of Education before it became the UCL Institute of Education in 2014.

Applications are invited for three-year PhD studentships, to start in the academic year 2018-19.  The studentships will cover course fees (at the usual level for UK and EU studentships) and a student stipend (at the RCUK rate which is GBP 16,553.00 in 2017-18).

Eligibility may be dependent on fee status.  This will vary from project to project.  Please see the project-specific information - via the relevant link below - for further details.
