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
The single departmental deadline for combined applications for Teaching
Assistantships, EPSRC Studentships, UCL Graduate Research Scholarships and
Overseas Research Scholarships is usually in January with interviews of
shortlisted candidates within a few weeks. These are usually advertised on the UCL website and on www.jobs.ac.uk from late November until early January
each academic year.
Other funding is often available via individual supervisors' research grants and
will be advertised separately on the UCL website and www.jobs.ac.uk.
All candidates who apply are automatically considered for all sources of funding that are available at the time of their application. All applications for the Mathematics PhD programme should be via the UCL Graduate Application.
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.
LSGNT (London School of Geometry and Number Theory)
The London School of Geometry and Number Theory offers a fully-funded 4-year PhD programme and is a joint venture of Imperial College, King's College London and University College London with funding from EPSRC as an EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training.
The application process for LSGNT places is separate to the UCL Mathematics PhD application process - see LSGNT website for how to apply.
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.

There are also a number of small Departmental Scholarships for which all successful candidates and current students are considered where eligible.
