Postgraduate Research Projects (PhD and MPhil)


We welcome candidates to get in touch with us for enquiries about potential postgraduate research projects. This includes candidates who have their own ideas for projects, or candidates who don't have specific projects in mind but would still like to pursue a PhD. In the first instance, please get in touch with one of the academics on the group members page using their areas of interest as a guide. Please note that chances of funding vary depending on nationality:

  • UK Students: Full funding for UK students is available but there are limited spaces

  • EU students: Payment of fees is available but there are limited spaces

  • Non-EU students should have an idea of a source of funding for your studies (usually your own government) - Newcastle also has the NUORS scheme in place to help top up overseas funding

General information about postgraduate funding at Newcastle University is available here: https://www.ncl.ac.uk/postgraduate/fees-funding/
