School-wide PhD scholarships

Our School also offers PhD scholarships open to prospective Geography and Environment students. These are normally advertised in the autumn of each year on specialised websites such as jobs.ac.uk. You can also stay updated on this and other opportunities by following us on Twitter.

University-wide PhD scholarships

Loughborough University also runs several University-wide PhD scholarship schemes that are open to Geography and Environment students. These are targeted at prospective PhD students from specific countries or in specific areas of specialisation.


Students can also fund their own PhD, in which case they may be able to partly cover their expenses with a variety of sources of loans and support from different funders.

Please see the University’s Research degree funding page and the website of the Doctoral Training College.
