A successful applicant will hold an offer of a place to study a PhD at the University of Birmingham, starting in October 2012. They will typically be top of their cohort of undergraduate students. If they are at a leading institution within their country, this requirement can sometimes be relaxed to within the top 5% to 10% of their cohort. The applicant?s profile of marks will be exemplary (equivalent to high first class with no marks in the IIi equivalent category or below). The quality of the institution should be judged by world university rankings. Applicants could already have research published in international journals as a result of Masters level research for instance. Their references will attest to qualities of academic achievement or research potential that make the candidate stand out above their peers. They may have won prizes within their institution, or even international prizes. The Scholarship is conditional on nominated candidates achieving a first class mark (or equivalent) in their final examinations before beginning their PhD at the University of Birmingham.
Scholarship Deadline: 3rd February 2012
