The TPP Alan Turing Studentship

Alan Turing was a King’s College Fellow considered by many to be the father of Computer Science. In homage to this profound thinker, whose pioneering ideas changed our world and continue to hold significant potential for our future, King’s College was pleased to create The Alan Turing Initiative. Through the Alan Turing Studentships, we hope to attract the most promising scholars from around the world who wish to delve deeper into their subjects, supported by leaders in the field. The first of these studentships has been generously supported by TPP (The Phoenix Partnership).


MPhil in Advanced Computer Science

The TPP Alan Turing Studentship for an MPhil in Advanced Computer Science provides up to £25,000 for a suitable candidate studying at King’s College, Cambridge for the academic year 2019/2020. The award is intended to fully cover University course fees and the recommended maintenance costs for one home (UK), EU or refugee student.  Overseas students are welcome to apply for the studentship (on a partially funded basis).

Computer Science students (already studying at King’s College) who have been accepted for the Part III integrated Masters course may also be eligible to apply for the fund if it has not already been awarded to an MPhil candidate. Where a candidate already has existing funding the amount may be spilt to provide partial funding for multiple suitable students at the discretion of the King’s College Graduate Tutor and TPP.

Successful candidates should expect to be contacted by TPP before and during their MPhil course, as they are keen to support research projects and provide industrial engagement if appropriate.

How to Apply
