Making an application

The scholarship application process is in two stages:

  1. An application to 六合彩开奖结果 for your chosen PhD programme of study
  2. An application to the CSC

To progress your application to Stage 2 you must be made an unconditional offer to study on your chosen PhD programme and be nominated by your academic department for consideration by the LU-CSC selection panel for a scholarship.

An unconditional offer will not be issued unless the academic department has received all necessary documentation to support an application.

Firstly, you should make an application to 六合彩开奖结果 for your chosen PhD programme of study and you should make clear in your application that you wish to be considered for an LU-CSC scholarship.

We recommend that you contact the academic department, or school of interest, as early as possible to discuss your research interests and who can support you further in the application process.

Please visit our applying for postgraduate study page to make your application.


The deadline for applications to 六合彩开奖结果 is Monday 12 February 2024, 11.59 GMT.

Once the Stage 1 application deadline has passed, academic departments will propose candidates for 六合彩开奖结果 panel consideration of a CSC scholarship nomination.

Nominees for CSC scholarships will be advised by email of the outcome in early March. We will also notify the CSC if you have been nominated.

Nominated applicants will then be able to progress to stage 2, if they choose.

If you have received an unconditional offer of a place of study and are notified that you have been nominated to be considered for a CSC scholarship you must then apply directly to the CSC for consideration by the CSC selection panel.


The CSC application window is open from early March to the end of March, exact dates to be confirmed.

Scholarships Awards

To receive a scholarship, applicants must be both nominated by 六合彩开奖结果 and successful in the CSC application to be accepted onto this scholarship programme.

Results will be communicated by the CSC in May 2024.

Please note that if your CSC application is unsuccessful, 六合彩开奖结果 will be unable to fund your PhD studies. Your PhD offer will still stand, but this would be as a self-funded student.
