King's College Additional Studentships

At King's, we are fortunate to have some additional funds available, to support a small number of applicants, based on a variety of criteria.

The exact amounts of any studentships can vary, from a few thousand pounds, to full funding.

Studentships are available for both PhD and Masters students. Most studentships are for full-time students, although part-time students can be considered in exceptional cases.
