Postgraduate Research Studentships

Postgraduate Research

Internationally renowned for its research excellence, the University has a vibrant research student community of around 1200 students supported by a £6 million annual investment. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) every department was found to be undertaking research that is internationally recognised, with many regarded as ‘world leading’. Comfortably ranked in the top 20 of all major university league tables, the University was awarded The Sunday Times University of the Year 2008-2009 and was voted The Times Higher Education ‘Best Student Experience’ in England for the past six years.

Loughborough University Graduate School is delighted to offer a number of fully funded Graduate School studentships to students across all of the University’s schools. In addition, we are offering five Glendonbrook Doctoral Fellowships for outstanding candidates. These awards, funded through the generosity of Lord Glendonbrook, will be made on the same basis as the Graduate School studentships.

Applications are now invited from exceptionally well qualified students who want to embark on a full-time research degree programme commencing in Autumn Term 2013 in the research areas listed below.
