UCL Overseas Research Scholarships in UK - 2021/2022

UCL (University College London) is London’s leading multidisciplinary university, with 11000 staff, 35000 students and an annual income of over £1bn. The grants consist of fee funding to cover the difference between Overseas and UK/EU tuition fees. UCL-ORS recipients who do not have any other fee funding will receive additional UCL funding to cover the UK/EU tuition fees for the duration of the ORS award. Awards are tenable for years 1, 2, and 3 of a full-time MPhil/PhD/EngD degree programme subject to annual review and renewal.


Applicants must be holding or expecting to achieve at least an upper second-class Honours UK undergraduate degree or equivalent qualification.

  • Applicants from outside the home country will often need to meet specific English language/other language requirements in order to be able to study there.


  • You must submit a complete application for admission onto a research degree programme by the specified deadline. You do not need to have secured an offer of a place at UCL in order to apply for the opportunity , but you must have submitted your admission application.

Please describe clearly – in a language which can be understood by academics from any discipline – the aim of your research, the methodology you will use and the potential significance of this study to your discipline. It is extremely important that you pay attention to this summary and write in as clear language as possible as it may significantly affect the outcome of your application.
