In order to attract the best and brightest PhD students, the University seeks to offer not only unparalleled research facilities and superb supervision, but also to provide development opportunities which will support our research students as they progress beyond their PhD through an exciting scholarship scheme.

This scholarship is awarded in collaboration between the University's Doctoral College and the Business School.


Applicants must meet the following requirements:

  • Programme: All candidates must hold a conditional or unconditional offer onto one of our Doctoral programmes and expect to join in September 2024. While you can be awaiting an application outcome when applying for this scholarship only those with an offer can be considered. Therefore, please ensure all necessary documents have been uploaded to your programme application at least 10 working days before the scholarship deadline.

  • Academic Standing: This normally requires a minimum qualification (or expected qualification if you are a current Masters student) of above-average academic achievement, typically 65% or above overall at the Masters level, with a distinction-level dissertation, or the overseas equivalent. For PhD Financial Technology, this requires a Masters with a distinction classification or the overseas equivalent. For applicants to our PhD with Integrated Study programmes, applicants who do not hold a Masters can be considered if they have a First at Undergraduate level, or the international equivalent, with a mark of 70 or more in the dissertation module.

  • English Competency: You must meet the English requirements for the PhD Programme. The most commonly approved certificate is an IELTS, for which the minimum accepted score is 7.0 overall with at least 6.0 in each section.

Please note that we will not generally consider candidates who have already obtained a PhD or equivalent qualification.

Other factors such as financial status and nationality are not taken into account. We aim to attract the greatest diversity of applications to this scheme and will ensure that recruitment processes are robust and unbiased so that traditionally underrepresented groups, including those from a minority background, and those from the most deprived communities in Scotland and the rest of the world are treated fairly.


Full tuition fees (UK or Overseas level) with an annual stipend equal to the UKRI minimum rate for the relevant academic year of study.

Subject to satisfactory progress, the scholarship is offered for 3 and a half years (or pro-rata for part time).
