About the scholarships

The Department of Bioengineering is proud to announce its offering of three fully-funded scholarships for Black and Mixed-Black Heritage PhD students.

Our objective is to address the under-representation of Black and Mixed Black students within our department. ​

​These scholarships are available to students ordinarily resident (equivalent to Home Student status) in the United Kingdom. The funding will cover stipend and tuition fees for an optional MRes (1 year) and 3 years of PhD study. 


The scholarships are open to applicants with Black or Mixed Black Heritage who are ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom (equal to being eligible for home fees status).

Graduates with a degree in engineering, any of the physical sciences, mathematics, biological sciences, physiology or medicine may be accepted for a PhD.

We will normally only accept applicants with a good 2:1 or 1st class degree from a UK university, or non-UK equivalent.

How to apply:

Please apply directly to this scheme rather than the usual departmental PhD application route.

If you would like support at any stage of the application process, we strongly encourage you to contact us at [email protected] and we will connect you with the right person for advice and guidance.

We will carry out two rounds of funding until the three scholarships are allocated.

First round:

  • November 4th 2022
    Applications close
  • November 25th 2022
    Applicants to be informed of whether they have been shortlisted. Shortlisted candidates will then submit a formal PhD application to College. 
  • December 19th 2022
    Shortlisted candidate interviews
  • December 23rd 2022
    Successful candidates will be informed. Candidates will then decide whether they wish to start their studies with an MRes or PhD.
