Applications for 2020/21 entry are now open

The University of Exeter has just opened applications for the fourth round of fully-funded QUEX studentships. We are seeking exceptional students to join a world-leading, cross-continental research team tackling major challenges facing the world’s population in global sustainability and wellbeing as part of the QUEX Institute. The joint PhD scholarship programme provides a fantastic opportunity for the most talented doctoral students to work closely with world class research groups and benefit from the combined expertise and facilities offered at the two institutions.

A combination of fully-funded and third-party match-funded scholarships are available for high-quality, highly collaborative research proposals. This select group will have the chance to study in the UK and Australia, and will graduate with a joint degree from The University of Queensland and the University of Exeter.

The projects advertised in the latest recruitment round can be found below. You can search through other postgraduate research opportunities on our PGR database and get in touch to find out more.
