Fully-Funded PhD Studentship Competition

To support the growth of our PGR community, we are delighted to announce up to 10 fully-funded PhD studentships for candidates starting in April 2024 (Funded PhD & MRes studentships | Bournemouth University). The focus of these awards will be on research excellence as we look to REF2029.

The studentships will be awarded via a competitive process to the best candidates who identify a supervisory team and develop research projects which align to one or more of the BU research themes:

  • Helping people to live better for longer
  • Helping protect and preserve a sustainable environment
  • Preparing for and recovery from crisis
  • Challenging marginalisation, misinformation and under-representation
  • Helping creative industries and cultural heritage to thrive
  • Using our expertise to be a catalyst for growth, boosting skills and advancing the region.

With this student focussed funding approach, we aim to develop the excellence of our research culture by attracting high calibre candidates with a passion for research and a strong desire to contribute to BU’s research environment. The allocative process, which is aligned to those adopted for external UKRI fully-funded opportunities, will be overseen by the Interim Associate Pro Vice-Chancellor Research and Knowledge Exchange and administered by the Doctoral College.

Full details can be found in the Fully Funded Studentship Policy. Applicants will be asked to complete a bespoke application form (also available in word here) and attach this to their online application.

    I have great interest to conduct pure research in different public health related issues specially in the maternal and child health issue of the leave behind communities. I have eagerness to enrol PhD course in such public health issue, so I can contribute in the community development through sharing my knowledge and experience. My greatest strength would be my eagerness to learn. I am very hard-working and energetic. I have good tolerance and patience, which helps me to overcome challenging situations. I have more than 14 years of work experience in the public health sector. I have completed the Master of Public Health in Epidemiology. I have completed different training courses like Epidemiology & Biostatistics, Office Management, Communicative English, statistics for public health research, and Literature Search. I have the co-authorship of 30 article published in different peer reviewed journals.
