Issues of Admission and Funding are generally treated separately. PhD students who have secured admission place come with all sorts of funding, including full or partial external or personal funding. In order to be considered for competitive internal departmental PhD funding you must first submit a PhD application. The main recurring sources of funding are listed below. The single departmental deadline for combined applications for Teaching Assistantships, EPSRC Studentships, UCL Graduate Research Scholarships and Overseas Research Scholarships is usually in early February with interviews of shortlisted candidates a week later. These are advertised on the departmental website and on www.jobs.ac.uk in late December or early January each year. Candidates whose admission application is complete by the deadline, which include the arrival of their references, are automatically considered. Other funding is often available via individual supervisors' research grants and will be advertised separately on the departmental website.
Most years we have a number of Teaching Assistantships that we offer to new PhD students. These provide tuition fees (at the Home/EU rate) and stipend for 4 years and require the recipient to teach for 25% of their time, while completing a PhD.
We receive an annual allocation of EPSRC PhD studentship.
At least one NERC Studentship in the area of geophysical fluid dynamics is usually available.
