Vice Chancellor's Scholarships

Roehampton is pleased to offer 50 VC Scholarships for PhD research areas across the university. We are seeking bold, innovative postgraduates with a record of achievement to undertake a broad range of thematic and cross-disciplinary projects. You will be supervised by experienced teams of internationally renowned scholars, enjoying extensive opportunities to collaborate with a diverse range of partners and to work within one of our highly acclaimed research networks.

Funding is available for UK/EU and International* students at Home/EU rates (tuition fee waiver at £4,052 and stipend at £16,057 for 2015/16) for three years full-time study (or part time equivalent for five years).

Students will benefit from being part of their Departmental research communities and the Graduate School, which sits at the heart of our supportive doctoral community. All doctoral students further benefit from a range of high-quality training opportunities that foster development both within the academy and beyond.

*International recipients of VC Scholarships will only be covered to Home/EU rates, and be expected to make up the difference between Home/EU and International tuition fee rates. Current levels can be found on the University’s Finance Pages.
