The Open University School of Engineering and Innovation (SEI) offers PhD studentships to support students pursuing a doctoral degree in the field of engineering and innovation. These studentships typically provide full or partial funding for tuition fees and living expenses, as well as a stipend for the student to support their research. The exact details of the funding package may vary depending on the specific studentship and the department offering it.
PhD students in the SEI are supported by a network of academic staff, including experienced research supervisors, who provide guidance and support throughout their studies. In addition to financial support, PhD students at the SEI also have access to a range of research facilities and resources, including specialized engineering and innovation equipment and software.
To be eligible for a PhD studentship at the SEI, you typically need to have a strong academic record in a relevant field of engineering or innovation, a clear research proposal, and relevant research experience or qualifications. Additionally, you may be required to demonstrate a high level of aptitude for research and the ability to work independently on a significant research project.
The Open University UK PhD Studentships 2023 is available to undertake PhD level programs at The Open University.
Following subject are available to study under this scholarship program.
Studentship funding from UK research councils is available for certain projects, whilst others are funded from internal University sources. The funding includes all tuition fees and a stipend, as well as an allowance for research training, travel, conferences etc.
Candidates for research council studentships are required to have a ‘relevant connection’ with the United Kingdom. A relevant connection may be established if, at the date of application/nomination:
a) the candidate has been ordinarily resident in the UK throughout the 3-year period immediately preceding the date of an award, and
b) has not been resident in the UK, during any part of that 3-year period, wholly or mainly for the purposes of full time education, and
c) has settled status in the UK within the meaning of the Immigration Act 1971 (i.e. is not subject to any restriction on the period for which he/she may stay)
EU nationals who are resident in the UK only need to follow criterion (a) from the above list. If they do not satisfy this criterion, then they are eligible for funding for fees only and will have to make separate arrangements to fund living costs.
Projects funded internally by the University may have less restrictive requirements and therefore be available for overseas applicants.
All studentships offered by The Open University offer fees and stipends at or above the minimum level specified by the Research Councils.
Funded PhD places in the school are awarded competitively, and have high entry requirements. Such PhDs are normally completed on a full-time basis, with students based on campus in Milton Keynes. Applications will be considered from students with, or expecting to gain, a first degree in any of a wide range of disciplines at first or upper second class level.
SEI attempts to recruit the best candidates for any of its advertised projects (see the project list) based on qualifications, skills and aptitude for research, although they also have to take account of subject balance, supervisor workload, timeliness and fit to strategic objectives.
