Fifty research scholarships are available for UK, EU and overseas students. Many are full scholarships, paying your tuition fees and a stipend of 12940 pounds to cover living expenses in your first year, rising in second and third years. The rest pay your fees and/or a contribution towards living expenses.

Payment of fees for non-EU students is subject to successful competition for an Overseas Research Student award. By making contributions to teaching, for example by leading tutorial groups, the student can expect to earn an additional 500-1000 pounds per year.
INFORMATICS is the study of information and computation, in both natural and engineered systems. It comprises a vast range of scientific and engineering endeavour and has enormous economic and social impact. The University of Edinburgh’s School of Informatics possesses a combination of breadth and strength unparallelled elsewhere in the UK and competitive world-wide. It is the only department to have achieved the top 5*A rating in Computer Science in the UK government’s 2001 Research Assessment Exercise round, and it is the UK’s biggest research group in this area. We currently have around 270 students studying for PhD, and around 140 for MSc.
PHD STUDY is carried out within one of our six research Institutes:
ANC: Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation
CISA: Centre for Intelligent Systems and their Applications
ICCS: Institute for Communicating and Collaborative Systems
ICSA: Institute for Computing Systems Architecture
IPAB: Institute of Perception, Action and Behaviour
LFCS: Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science
