Candidates may not have already started their courses, and must have already been offered places on PhD research programs.
Applicants must be planning to study at the Newcastle campus. Courses that are based in London, Singapore, or Malaysia are not eligible for funding. Candidates must have already applied to and been offered a place to study at Newcastle University. Master’s courses are not eligible.
In order to apply, candidates should complete and submit the Newcastle University Overseas Research Scholarship application. In the application, candidates will supply information about their present and previous qualifications, include pre-university qualifications and professional examinations to be taken. Information about work experience, publications, and the proposed course of research must also be supplied.
Applicants must also provide information for an academic referee. The application committee will then contact the referee directly.
