LSE PhD Studentships

Eligibility

LSE PhD Studentships are tenable for four years and cover full fees and an annual stipend of £18,000. They are available for UK, EU and international students undertaking research in any LSE discipline, with annual renewal subject to satisfactory academic performance.

These awards will be made solely on the basis of outstanding academic merit and research potential. This relates both to your past academic record and to an assessment of your likely aptitude to complete a PhD in your chosen topic in the time allocated.

The studentships include a requirement that scholars contribute to their department as part of their research training, in the form of teaching or other work, usually from year two onwards.

How to apply

Academic departments nominate students for consideration by a School panel for all PhD funding opportunities they may be eligible for. There is no separate application for any of these studentships.

To be considered for this funding, you must submit your complete application for admission to LSE by a specific date. This date differs by academic department. Refer to the individual programme page for the relevant deadline information. Find your graduate programme.

  • deadline for Economics, Geography and Environment and Mathematics for 2021 entry (including PhD Studentships and ESRC funding): 17 December 2020
  • funding deadline for first round of PhD Studentships and for ESRC funding for 2021 entry: 14 January 2021
  • funding deadline for second round of PhD Studentships deadline for 2021 entry (some departments only): 29 April 2021

ESRC Studentships

LSE has an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) and has about 30 ESRC studentships per year for a number of programmes across 19 departments. Students of all nationalities are eligible for ESRC funding.

Eligibility

ESRC Studentships are available for a number of programmes. Individual programme entries detail which programmes are eligible for ESRC funding. Find your graduate programme.

A minimum of 30 studentships are awarded each year. Students of all nationalities are eligible for ESRC funding (although there is a cap on the number of studentships that can be awarded to international students).

Scholarship amount

Depending on the programme of study, ESRC Studentships will cover a one year’s research training master’s linked to a three year PhD, a two-year MRes linked to two years of study, or a three-year PhD programme. Find out more about these different award types.

ESRC Studentships cover full fees (for International students, LSE will cover the difference between UK and overseas fees) and an annual stipend, which for 2020 entry was £17,285.

There is additional DTP funding available for ESRC funded students to support difficult language training, field work, overseas institutional visits and collaborative research activities.

How to apply

Applications for ESRC funding for MSc or MRes programmes linked to a PhD (1+3 or 2+2)

The 1+3 or 2+2 scheme provides funding for a one- or two-year research training master’s (MSc or MRes) linked to a PhD programme and is designed for students who have not already completed an ESRC recognised programme of research training.

If you would like to be considered for this, you should submit an application for the relevant MSc or MRes programme, including a research proposal for the PhD element of the programme (but check whether the programme you are applying for has specific instructions about this). You must also indicate your wish to be considered for 1+3 or 2+2 funding in your personal statement.

There is no separate application for the studentship as such, but you must submit your application for the MSc or MRes programme by a specific deadline (see below).

Applications for ESRC funding for direct entry to an MPhil/PhD programme (+3)

Collaborations

The ESRC are keen to see students involved in collaboration with non-academic partners (charities, private sector, public sector) and if you have an existing involvement with an organisation which might support your research and might benefit from your work, you should flag this up on your application.

For 2021 entry LSE has a collaborative studentship avaliable in the Methodolgy Department with non-academic partner is Kantar Public UK Division.
