PhD Scholarships In Geography


The School of Geography is offering 20 bursaries for PhD programmes starting September 2010. Each bursary is equivalent to 25% of the annual tuition fee (equivalent to £3875) which can be used to reduce the costs of the whole tuition fee or taken as funds for maintenance. The bursaries are designed to encourage studentships which focus on interdisciplinary research which can address environmental and climate change, the societal challenges these create, and the necessary policies for environmental management and adaptation.
