Over 100 funded PhD studentships available at Northumbria University

Northumbria University has recently opened up PhD applications for an October 2023 start. We have over 100 funded studentships available, covering full tuition fees and a monthly stipend. With results from the Research Excellence Framework (REF2021) showing Northumbria as having the biggest rise in research power ranking of any UK university, now is a great time to consider a PhD.

The deadline for applications is Friday 27 January 2023 and a full list of PhDs can be found here. Self-funded students are also eligible for the alumni discount on tuition fees.

Why not contact your faculty and see if a PhD is for you? To find out more or for any queries contact our PGR Admissions Team.
