University of Bristol Postgraduate Research Scholarships - Faculty of Engineering

The Faculty of Engineering is pleased to offer 12 fully funded PhD scholarships in support of the brightest students from across the globe. You will have the opportunity to complete your PhD programme under the supervision of our internationally recognised and respected researchers.

We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, and encourage applications from across the world and from minority and under-represented backgrounds. All applications, whether requiring home or overseas fees, will receive equal consideration.

A number of these scholarships will also be offered specifically in support of widening participation to both UK applicants and to students coming to us from low and middle income countries.

We particularly encourage applications for research projects that align with (but are not limited to) the following themes:

  • Health and living
  • Transport and infrastructure
  • Energy and environment
  • Networks and security
  • AI and data science
  • Materials and Manufacturing
  • Robotics and autonomy
  • Advanced computation and quantum technology


Our PhD scholarship funding covers fees, a stipend at UKRI (UK Research and Innovation) rates (£17,668 per year in 2022/23) for living expenses and up to £2000 per year for research expenses, for up to four years.
