Issues of Admission and Funding are generally treated separately. 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 January or 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. Other funding is often available via individual supervisors' research grants and will be advertised separately on the departmental website.
All candidates whose admission application is complete by the deadline are automatically considered for all available sources of funding.
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 studentships.
UCL Graduate Research Scholarship
This provides 3 years full stipend and tuition fees at the UK/EU rate.
Overseas Research Scholarship and Dean's Prize
Both of these provide funding to cover the difference between UK/EU fees and Overseas fees.
LMS Grace Chisholm Young Fellowships
The London Mathematical Society offers two fellowships each year to mathematicians who need support when their mathematical career is interrupted by family responsibilities, relocation of partner, or other similar circumstance.
