We are always looking for good PhD students. Applications are always welcome from self-funded or locally supported prospective students. Funding for exceptional applicants is available through the yearly CCSR scholarships. Another possibility is to apply for a Research Fellowship in case of vacancies in our research projects and pursue a part-time PhD; this requires a suitable background and research experience (and implies a longer path towards a PhD).
If you are seeking a scholarship or have self funding, in the first instance you may wish to send your CV to an academic member of staff in CCSR to see what suitability you have for a scholarship and discuss research topics as appropriate. You will also be able to apply to the faculty noting that you are interested in research at CCSR.
A more plausible path to obtain a scholarship for a PhD is by doing a MSc at Surrey and getting a distinction; this increases significantly the chances of a scholarship.
Each year we have a limited amount of EPSRC funding available. UK students may be eligible for tuition fees and living allowance in the form of an EPSRC grant, and EU students may obtain tuition fees from the EPSRC.
Research Fellowship Opportunities
From time to time, we advertise for high calibre research staff, to come and work at the Centre on one of our research projects. Current vacancies at the university are listed by human resources.
