What is Imperial College PhD Scholarship scheme 2016-17?

If you are a high performing undergraduate or Master's student, and have a strong desire to undertake a PhD programme at a world class research institution, you could be selected to receive full tuition fees and a generous stipend for a PhD place at Imperial College London.

Opportunities for PhD funding are extremely competitive. In the 2015-16 PhD admissions period, less than half of the eligible PhD applicants who nominated themselves for the IC PhD Scholarship were shortlisted by their chosen Department to be considered for this scheme, Imperial’s most prestigious award. Ultimately, only 19% of those who self-nominated were awarded the scholarship. Applicants should be confident that they are able to demonstrate outstanding academic performance before applying for this scholarship scheme. 

The scheme aims to provide up to 50 research students with great potential the opportunity to work within their chosen research field with the support of an excellent supervisor.

The earliest start date for funded places is 1 August 2016, the latest start date is 1 November 2016.

  1. Applications are accepted from talented candidates from Imperial College London, the UK and worldwide. There are no restrictions on nationality. 
  2. Candidates must be among the highest achievers in their undergraduate cohort, and in receipt of, or due to receive a first class UK degree or equivalent. 
  3. Candidates with Master’s qualifications should have achieved a distinction or, where this has yet to have been achieved, be able to provide evidence of high performance that will lead to a distinction. They should also hold a first class UK undergraduate degree or equivalent. 
  4. Candidates with degrees from overseas institutions are strongly urged to determine if their scores/grades are equivalent to the relevant eligibility criteria
