Funded PhD opportunities with University of the West of Scotland 

University of the West of Scotland (UWS) is one of Scotland’s most innovative modern universities. It’s ranked by Times Higher Education in the world’s top 150 young universities, and in the top 600 universities overall in their world university rankings. 

Research-led solutions for global problems

Under the UWS Vice-Chancellor’s Studentship Scheme 2022, sixteen  funded PhD studentships are offered for October 2022 start. These highly selective studentships span the University’s four academic schools: Business & Creative Industries; Computing, Engineering & Physical Sciences; Education & Social Sciences; and Health & Life Sciences. 

“These sought-after studentships help to drive forward our vision for the institution to be recognised as a world-leading university, supporting excellent, relevant and purposeful research.”

Dr Lucy Meredith, Interim Principal and Vice-Chancellor at UWS 

The studentship themes are aligned with the ambitions of UWS Strategy 2025 which sets out the University’s commitment to distinctive research and innovation, and addressing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. 

“At University of the West of Scotland, we are incredibly proud of our innovative and diverse research portfolio, which not only addresses major societal challenges, but transforms lives through imaginative thinking and significant academic expertise. The Vice-Chancellor’s studentships demonstrate our commitment to not only significantly expand our research output, but to become a key part of the solution to many of the problems society will face in a post-Covid world and, indeed, beyond that.”

Professor Milan Radosavljevic

UWS Vice-Principal (Research, Innovation & Engagement)
