We will be inviting applications from outstanding UK/EU and International students for our 2016 Singapore Studentships.
If successful, you will be funded to work alongside other researchers on a PhD research project in one of our 4 strategic research themes. These themes are:
To apply for a Newcastle-Singapore Studentship you will need to:
A range of PhD options for your prospective school will then be given. Please select the first option, even it does not match your exact PhD project research area.
You will then need to add your project NSS code, ie NSSXX in the ‘Studentship/Partnership Reference’ field (this information is listed next to the project title that you are applying for). It is this code that identifies the exact project you are applying for and the relevant research area in your prospective school.
You must also attach to your application a current CV, your transcripts, a two page cover letter explaining why we should select you for your chosen project, and details for two referees.
We encourage students to apply for a maximum of TWO projects. Part of the competition is rated on student ‘fit’ to project, therefore it is advised that students focus on the project and area of research where they feel they can make the most impact.
The online portal will only allow one application to a school. If you are applying for TWO projects at the same school then you will need to email the second one directly to PGAdmissions@ncl.ac.uk with all the relevant information requested and they will forward to the selector.
We particularly encourage applications from women.
