Eligibility criteria

Applications have now closed for 2017. We anticipate that applications for PhD scholarships starting in September 2018 will open in early 2018.

For 2017 applications, the following eligibility criteria applied:

  • All applicants should hold a strong undergraduate degree (2.1 or above) and/or a relevant masters qualification (or expectation of the same).
  • University scholarships in most disciplines are open to home/EU and international applicants. However, the shortfall between international and Home/EU fees will not be covered by the scholarship and another funding source will have to be identified by international applicants to cover this.
  • Part-time scholarships are open to home/EU applicants only.
  • GTA scholarships are open to home/EU applicants only.
  • While teaching experience is desirable for GTA applicants, successful candidates will have the opportunity to develop their higher education teaching skills through training, practice and mentoring.
  • Candidates who already hold a PhD offer from Sheffield Hallam University (to start in September 2017) are eligible to apply for a scholarship.
  • Currently enrolled PhD students are not eligible.
  • International students must provide evidence that they meet the minimum IELTS requirements appropriate for their field of study. These are detailed in the subject specific scholarship opportunities.
