Departmental Research Studentships
Departmental research studentships may be awarded when funds are available.

You can search for available studentships by using our PhD Opportunities finder.
UCL EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training
Four-year studentships are available at UCL's 16 Centres for Doctoral Training, funded through the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC), and in partnership with research-leading industrial and higher education institutes. Further information can be found on their website.
Demonstratorships and Teaching Assistantships
Demonstratorships are awarded by some departments for four years and include a stipend and tuition fees at the UK/EU rate, in return for teaching or demonstrating for up to 400 hours per year. Partial demonstratorships are also made available as and when required by some departments.
Some departments offer teaching assistantship positions. These are open to students who have successfully completed the first year of their MPhil/PhD programme. The duties of teaching assistants vary but will normally include the teaching of undergraduate students, coursework marking and examination grading. Individual departments should be contacted for information on the availability of demonstratorship and teaching assistantship opportunities.
