The University of St Andrews was founded in 1413 making it Scotland’s first university and the third oldest in the English-speaking world. Over the past six centuries it has established a reputation as one of Europe’s leading and most distinctive centres for teaching and research. This is an historic moment for the University as we look back on six centuries of tradition and of belief in the value of people, ideas and excellence. It falls to the present generation to preserve these values for the generations to come.Â Â As we stand on the threshold of our seventh century, the University is to invest in the future of the next generation of world-leading researchers by launching a new prestigious PhD scholarship scheme. These anniversary scholarships are available from September 2013 and comprise fees plus an annual stipend.
The School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews seeks excellent students to undertake PhD research in any of the general research areas in the school:
We are looking for highly motivated research students with an interest in these exciting research areas Our only requirements are that the proposed research would be good, we have staff to supervise it, and that you would be good at doing it. We have up to 6 Scholarships to award in the current round. The Scholarships offers costs of fees and an annual tax-free maintenance stipend, normally of Â£13,590 per year for 3.5 years. Students should normally have or expect at least the equivalent of an upper-2nd class Honours degree or Masters degree in Computer Science or a related discipline.
For further information on how to apply, see our postgraduate web pages (http://www.cs.st-andrews.ac.uk/prospective-pg).
The closing date for applications is February 4th, 2013 and we will make decisions on Scholarships by April 22nd, 2013. (Applications after Feb 4th may be considered, at our discretion.) Informal enquiries can be directed to [email protected] or to potential supervisors.
