NTU Fully-funded PhD Studentship Scheme 2022
We are keen to encourage proposals that align with our research strengths within the School of Social Sciences, so ensure you are familiar with our research centres. You can submit an application for one of our dedicated research projects. Alternatively, if you have your own idea for a PhD project, you can submit an application based on that proposal. We would encourage you to speak to potential supervisors about your ideas.
