The University has launched more than 100 fully funded studentships for October 2019 across a range of disciplines, including a new Vice-Chancellor’s Studentship Award.

The new programme will see the University invest more than £1.6m to support successful 2019 applicants over the course of their doctoral training.

Professor Max Lu, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Surrey, said: “Our academics make extraordinary discoveries that address some of the biggest challenges of our day, while inspiring students and colleagues on their own educational journeys.

It is a top priority for the University to attract exceptional global research talent in order to fulfil our mission to transform lives across the world through research and education. We are delighted to offer prospective PhD students a generous funding package to support their development as future leaders in academia and beyond.”

The University is currently home to more than 1,000 postgraduate researchers and circa 450 supervisors, who work together across more than 170 research areas. It has a strong and growing reputation for ground-breaking research in the areas of health, medicine, space, environment, mobile communications and hospitality management.
