Summer Scholars Scheme

Over the summer the Faculty provides several scholarships to students, offering a unique opportunity for students to gain experience in research—with the added bonus of paid work over the summer trimester.

Students will be selected for these scholarships based on academic merit, expertise in the research area, and recommendations from staff associated with the project.

For general information, terms and conditions and to check your eligibility, see Summer Research Scholarships.


The 2020/21 Summer Research Scholarships will be advertised from 1 September 2020 and applications for scholarships will close on 16 September.
