Summary

Strathclyde Research Studentship Scheme (SRSS) doctoral studentships are available annually for excellent students and excellent research projects.  There are two main sources of funding: Central University funding, and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council - Doctoral Training Partnership (EPSRC - DTP) funding.

The SRSS 2023/2024 competition will open in Autumn 2022 and students successful in this competition will commence studies in October 2023. Faculties will set their own internal deadlines for the competition.

Further information

The SRSS has three distinct allocations

  • Research Excellence Awards (REAs) for research excellence through defined projects that support the University‚Äôs strategic research ambitions. A student does not need to be identified at the time of academic application.
  • Student Excellence Awards (SEAs); for students with a minimum of a 2.1 undergraduate degree (or equivalent). A student needs to be identified at the time of academic application.
  • John Anderson Research Awards (JARAs) for students with a minimum of a 1st class undergraduate degree (or equivalent). A student needs to be identified at the time of academic application.  This award has a later application deadline and external funding must be part of the academic application.

The SRSS has 2 distinct funding sources:

  • Central University funding which is available to all Faculties and contributes to the SEAs, REAs and JARA awards.
  • Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council - Doctoral Training Partnership (EPSRC - DTP) funding which is available for the Science and Engineering Faculties and contributes to the SEAs and REAs only.
