To start:Â OctoberÂ 2014
The IoP is offeringÂ up to ten 1+3 (MSc+PhD) full-time awardsÂ suitable for students from a wide range of science backgrounds including neuroscience, psychology, biology, social science, physical science and mathematics. Students will register for an IoP MSc course (see Further Information) in the first year before commencing their PhD. Those students who already have a relevant MSc can apply for 3 years funding to undertake a PhD only. The awards are funded by the Medical Research Council, and through the Institute of Psychiatry âExcellenceâ programme.
PhD opportunities are offered across a wide range of subject areas. For project opportunities see theÂ projects list. (Please note, final project details are agreed between student and supervisors after an offer has been accepted).
Applicants should have (or be expected to obtain) a 2:1 or 1st class honours degree in a subject relevant to the proposed project. If applicants already possess (or expect to obtain) a research-based MSc degree, a merit or distinction level is required.
Award types and eligibility
Both the MRC and âIOP Excellenceâ studentships cover course fees (Home/EU rate) for the MSc and PhD; a stipend (up toÂ Â£16,000 per year) and a contribution towards research costs, training and conference attendance. For the MRC awards, MRCÂ eligibility criteria apply.
ForÂ the âIoP Excellenceâ studentships, non-UK EU applicants are eligible for a full award. Overseas students and those not meeting residency criteria may apply for an IoPÂ award but would be required to pay the balance of fees over the Home/EU rate.Â English language competence criteria apply.Â
International students are also encouraged to apply forÂ funding from the KCL Graduate School.
