Funding your PhD
We offer a fully funded Doctoral programme at the Business School. This includes a full tuition fee waiver (Home/EU or Overseas fees) plus a living stipend for up to five years through the Business School Graduate Teaching Assistant Scholarship.
Some of our scholarship funding comes from EPSRC and ESRC for candidates who meet Research Councils UK’s academic and residential eligibility conditions. During the MRes you will have a discussion with our team to find out whether you are eligible to move onto any of these awards. In addition, there are also opportunities to apply for the prestigious Imperial College London President’s PhD Scholarship which offers additional funding such as a consumables fund of £2000 per annum.
If you are successful in receiving a President’s PhD Scholarship or research council funding then this will replace your Business School Graduate Teaching Assistant Scholarship for the duration of your studies. All scholarships and awards are contingent on continuing satisfactory academic progress.
The Business School offers students financial support to help enable them to present their work at international conferences or attend specialist external training that is relevant to their thesis work.
