Research Studentships

Departmental Funding Currently Available

Details of any specific funding opportunities available within the Department will be listed here, as and when they arise. There are no studentships funded by our Department to apply for at the moment. Last update: Tuesday 28th June.

UCL Funding

UCL Research Scholarships

UCL Graduate Research Scholarships (GRS) and Overseas Research Scholarships (ORS) aim to attract high-quality students to UCL to undertake research. Awards are made annually to prospective and current UCL research students. Since a combined selection panel will consider ranked applications forwarded by all UCL departments, competition is stiff.

Full details on these scholarships, inlcuding the eligibility requirements and application procedure are available from the links below. Applicants will be considered for a GRS, and overseas fee payers will also automatically be considered for an ORS.

UCL Graduate Research Scholarships for Cross-disciplinary Training (GXD)

The Graduate Research Scholarships for Cross-disciplinary Training (GXD) allow current research students to spend a year in another department acquiring new research skills. Up to 4 scholarships annually - across UCL - are available to full-time UCL MPhil/PhD students from any country wishing to spend an additional year of their MPhil/PhD in another UCL department acquiring research skills and knowledge from a different discipline, which can be applied in their normal area of research. Training should be of one year's duration to permit sustained exposure to the new discipline. The scholarships can be taken at any point during the fee-paying period of their MPhil/PhD programme.

CSC-UCL Joint Research Scholarship

Funding offered by UCL and the China Scholarships Council (CSC) aims to expand the educational, cultural and technological co-operation between the UK and China.

Doctoral Training Centres

The London NERC Doctoral Training Partnership

    The London NERC Doctoral Training Partnership at UCL offers 4 year scholarships to students interested in multidisciplinary research degrees in environmental science, which may have a strong overlap with areas of statistics.

    Interested students should apply directly to the DTP. It may be advantageous to discuss research topics with staff members in the Department of Statistical Science so that they may be identified as potential supervisors at the time of application. A list of PhD projects submitted by UCL researchers (some of whom are based in the Department of Statistical Science) is available at the link below.

    UCL Security Science Doctoral Research Training Centre

    The SECReT international centre for PhD training in security and crime science at UCL offers 4 year PhD scholarships to students interested in multidisciplinary security- or crime-related research degrees, which may have a strong overlap with areas of statistics.

    Interested students should apply directly for admission to the Department of Security and Crime Science. It may be advantageous to discuss research topics with staff members in the Department of Statistical Science so that they may be identified as potential supervisors at the time of application.

    Centre for Doctoral Training in Data Intensive Science

    The Centre for Doctoral Training in Data Intensive Science (DIS) offers 4 year PhD scholarships. DIS encompasses a wide range of areas in the field of 'big-data' including the collection, storage and analysis of large datasets, as well as the use of complex models, algorithms and machine learning techniques to interpret the data. Over 80 academics from across UCL are involved in the Centre, including some from the Department of Statistical Science.

    Interested students should apply directly for admission to the Department of Physics and Astronomy. It may be advantageous to discuss research topics with staff members in the Department of Statistical Science so that they may be identified as potential supervisors at the time of application.

    Centre for Doctoral Training in Foundational Artificial Intelligence

    The UCL Centre for Artificial Intelligence is host to the UKRI funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Foundational Artificial Intelligence. The CDT provides training and is supported by a large body of industry partners to help the UCL team create an exciting platform to launch the students’ careers as scientists or AI entrepreneurs.

    Interested students should apply directly for admission to the Department of Computer Science. It may be advantageous to discuss research topics with staff members in the Department of Statistical Science so that they may be identified as potential supervisors at the time of application.

    Health Data Research UK/Turing PhD Programme

    the HDR UK/Turing PhD Programme aims to develop future leaders in health data science. Its underlying philosophy is that health data science requires a combination of expertise spanning three fundamental areas: statistical, computational and health sciences.

    Interested students should apply directly to HDR UK. It may be advantageous to discuss research topics with staff members in the Department of Statistical Science so that they may be identified as potential supervisors at the time of application.
