PhD scholarships

If you are applying for a PhD with us, you will need to think about how to fund your studies. Most applicants apply for a scholarship, either from UCL or another funding body.

These scholarships are offered via collaborations with our partner departments or external organisations, so please be careful to read the exact requirements for each scholarship before applying. 

UCL Cybersecurity CDT 

The UCL Centre for Doctoral Training in Cybersecurity is an exciting collaboration between three UCL departments: Computer Science (CS), Security and Crime Science (SCS), and Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy (STEaPP) and designed to increase the capacity of the UK to respond to future information and cybersecurity challenges.

We no longer have UKRI-funded studentships available. Potential candidates who may have other sources of funding available to them should email cybersecuritycdt@ucl.ac.uk for further info.

Other scholarships

There are other sources of funding available to graduate research students. The UCL website lists some of these, and you can visit external websites such as the Postgraduate Studentships website for funding options external to UCL.

Please direct any questions you may have regarding other scholarships to the relevant funding organisation, as we are only able to answer questions about the scholarships listed above.
