To be considered a home student, candidates must meet one of these criteria:
- be a UK national (meeting residency requirements)
- have settled status
- have pre-settled status (meeting residency requirements)
- have indefinite leave to remain or enter.
Studentships are open to all Home applicants and cover both tuition fees and an annual tax-free contribution to maintenance costs of at least £19,668 per year for 42 months.
About OPEC Fund Internship Program
In order to be considered for the Chemical Engineering PhD Scholarships, you will need to submit your PhD application for admission through the online admissions system. The programme title is ‘Chemical Engineering Research – Full Time’. Your application form must include:
1. Full transcripts of your university studies to date.
2. A personal statement to support your application, which should outline your research interest and experience.
3. A copy of your English Language certificate if applicable. Find out more about Imperial College London’s language requirements. Please note that where there are two levels we require the higher level.
4. The contact details of two referees, at least one of whom must be an academic referee, for example your project supervisor or personal tutor. You will be asked to give the e-mail addresses of the referees, which will trigger reference requests directly to the referees. Please do not upload reference letters as the references must come directly from the referees. References are confidential between the referee and the College.
Please note that the e-mail addresses must be personal institutional addresses (university or company e-mail addresses) rather than webmail addresses, as these are not acceptable. The scholarships are very competitive and our aim is to select the most outstanding PhD students and offer them financial support. Your application should demonstrate an outstanding academic record and research skills.
We have one selection process for all the scholarships that are administered by the College, including President’s Scholarships, CSC Imperial Scholarships and the Departmental Scholarship. You will need to submit your PhD application by the following deadlines in order to be considered for these:
- Round 1: 31 October for entry in October of the following year
- Round 2: 31 January for entry in October of the same year
Please note that the majority of scholarships are likely to be allocated in Round 1. We therefore recommend that you submit your PhD application in time for the Round 1 deadline.
Please note that where there is a later deadline advertised for College scholarships, the departmental deadline before the College deadline will apply, as you will need to go through the departmental selection process, including interviews, before we can put you forward for a College Scholarship.
