We are offering a number of competitively awarded 100% tuition fee scholarships to UK/EU students who start PhD study with us on 1 October 2018 in one of the following schools/departments:

  • Design School
  • Loughborough University London
  • Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering
  • School of Social Sciences: Geography and Environment; Politics and International Studies; Social and Policy Studies; Communication and Media
  • Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences

This new scholarship is designed to help more high calibre students join our close-knit community of postgraduate researchers working on a range of projects which aim to solve real-world issues. As the funding is not attached to a specific project, our studentship gives you the freedom to work with a supervisor to define a research area which best suits your interests.

As a doctoral researcher you will be a member of our Doctoral College, with access to a wide range of personal development and training activities and award-winning events that are designed to help you succeed in your studies and future career.

Who is eligible for the scholarship?

  • Applicants must be applying for a PhD in one of the following schools/departments: Design School; Loughborough University London; Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering; School of Social Sciences; or Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences.

  • Applicants must be entirely self-funded (without external funding, e.g. scholarships or sponsorships).
  • Applicants must be full-time students and eligible to pay tuition fees at the UK/EU rate.
