Application Method

If you are able to identify a project listed above that matches with your own research interests, the next step is to complete the online application process to an appropriate Engineering or Materials PhD programme, please click on the programme link included in the table above.  

Please remember to include a reference to the "China Scholarship Council" and also the name of the Project/Supervisor to associate your application with that studentship opportunity. Candidates will need to demonstrate their proficiency in English equivalent to an IELTS score of 6.5 (with a minimum score of 6.0 in Writing and 5.5 in each of the other test components). Candidates will need to submit a formal online application to the university by 30 January 2022. If successful in securing an offer from QMUL, candidates will then need to apply to the CSC for approval and to confirm funding. Further Guidance on how to apply for a PhD in general is available via: http://www.qmul.ac.uk/postgraduate/research/applyresearchdegrees/
