University Studentships/Vice-Chancellor's Research Studentships (VCRS)
From time to time the University makes funding available to support University Studentships.
These awards are open to applicants who hold or, expect to obtain, a first or upper second class honours degree and provide for payment of fees and maintenance allowance.
Applicants should indicate in the appropriate area on their University application form that they wish to apply for a University Studentship/VCRS award.
The competition for these awards will open in late December each year.
Applications are invited from UK, European Union and overseas students.
Applicants with up to one year’s current or previous registration for PhD at any institution may be considered for an award subject to the applicant providing evidence of good academic progress, formal release from all IP restrictions and ethical approval (if required).
Three-year awards may be allocated to such applicants where they are taking-up a new project at Ulster. In cases where the applicant is continuing with a project already commenced at Ulster, the duration of the award will be reduced by the full period of any previous registration.
VCRS Terms and Conditions
Any funding opportunities will be advertised on our Funding Opportunities page as soon as they become available.
