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 one scholarship each year funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). These EPSRC Scholarships cover Home fees and maintenance. UKRI have annoucned that some of these scholarships will be open to international students, however the difference between the Home and overseas fee will still need to be met. More information will be posted in due course.

We have a number of departmental Skempton Scholarships which cover Home fees for up to 3 years, and maintenance at the UKRI rate 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 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
