How to Apply

Applications for 2022/23 entry are now OPEN.

In order to apply for the Chancellor’s International Scholarships you must first apply for PhD admission, by 13 January 2022 at the very latest. Once you have submitted your admissions application you will then receive an automated e-mail giving you your 7 digit student ID number and instructions on registering your ITS applicant account, which you must complete. This can take up to 48 hours to come through. This username and password can then be used to apply for the scholarships. You do not need to have received an offer of study by the scholarship application deadline, just to have applied for admission.

All applicants should ensure they read the Guidance notes before submitting an application.

Essential Reading
