The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is pleased to offer a number of scholarships to support PhD study in any of its areas of research.

We have a number of available scholarships funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). These EPSRC Scholarships cover Home/EU fees and maintenance (for UK students and EU students who have studied in the UK for at least 3 years) or Home/EU fees only (for other EU students). Non-UK/EU students are not eligible for EPSRC scholarships unless they hold UK 'settled status' as determined by EPSRC

We have a number of departmental Skempton Scholarships which cover Home/EU fees for up to 3 years, and maintenance at EPSRC rates for 3.5 years. These scholarships are open to all applicants, and could provide partial funding for overseas students.

We also have available a number of Dixon Scholarships which cover Home/EU fees and which can be awarded to any student who meets our criteria of excellence and who is likely to benefit from study in our Department.

Further information about our research can be found on our research pages.

Nominations for EPSRC, Skempton, and Dixon Scholarships must be made by a candidate’s potential PhD supervisor. Therefore, if you are interested in these opportunities you should first identify a potential research area and a relevant academic supervisor and discuss your research interests with them. 

The supervisor must submit a cv, two references and a letter of support for any nominated candidates.

If you have any questions please contact Sarah Willis
