UCL has been selected as a Doctoral Training Centre by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the division can offer a small number of ESRC funded PhD Studentships. These are available to UK/EU students only.
A number of departmental demonstratorships/teaching assistantships are also available.
Other sources of funding include the UCL Grand Challenges studentship programme, UCL Graduate Research Scholarships, UCL Overseas Research Scholarships, and the four-year Wellcome Scholarship.
Full details of funding opportunities can be found on the UCL Scholarships website
Many students who complete a PhD in the department stay in academia, either going on to become postdoctoral researchers or research assistants, and ultimately lecturers. Some go on to further training in fields such as clinical psychology, educational psychology, consultancy or applied research. A PhD degree taken at UCL is recognised both nationally and internationally as a qualification of the highest status.
