Edinburgh Law School offers three full PhD studentships, one of which is provided through a generous bequest from alumnus Ewen Cameron in his name.

These scholarships will pay tuition fees and an annual stipend in line with UKRI rates (approximately £15,700 per annum). The stipend will be paid in equal monthly instalments for a maximum of three years, subject to satisfactory progress. Awards will be paid pro-rata for part-time candidates.

Eligibility

Candidates for these scholarships must be seeking to start their first year of full-time or part-time PhD study in the Edinburgh Law School within the academic year 2021/22 (September 2022 or January 2023 entry). UK and international students are eligible to apply. Please note that international students are not eligible for part-time study.

To be considered for these scholarships, you must meet our standard minimum entry requirements. The successful candidates normally exceed these requirements, having obtained the highest classification in at least one of their degrees, and provide a strong research proposal which has a close fit with research within the School.

When making our decisions we will:

  • Consider the applicant’s academic achievements, research proposal, research potential, and the degree of support provided by references.
  • Not take into account factors such as financial status and nationality.

Successful applicants will be expected to firmly accept the offer when the results of the application process are announced. Candidates who already have an offer of financial sponsorship from elsewhere will not be eligible.

Applications are welcome across the full range of legal and law-related subjects.

Please note that one of these scholarships will be ring-fenced under our Athena Swan action plan to support a project that deals with questions of equality, diversity or social justice. This can include projects on families and relationships, gender and sexuality, employment, crime and justice, environment, peace, war and conflict, and human rights.

Eligible applicants should complete an online scholarship application (after applying for admission to the PhD Law programme). The online scholarship form is located in EUCLID.

This scholarship is available for postgraduate research in Scots private law at the University of Edinburgh leading to the degree of PhD. The scholarship is offered by the Edinburgh Legal Education Trust, which was formed in 1996 for the advancement of legal education. The Trustees wish to award a scholarship for study beginning in September 2022.

Choice of topic

Applicants are free, indeed expected, to choose their own topic. The emphasis, however, should be on legal doctrine rather than on, for example, legal theory or socio-legal issues. Historical or comparative perspectives are welcome. A list of possible topics is given in the Appendix below but there are many others. Professor Kenneth Reid (Kenneth.reid@ed.ac.uk) or Professor Andrew Steven (andrew.steven@ed.ac.uk), the Scholarship Administrators, would be happy to give informal advice. Examples of the type of work that the Trustees are willing to fund may be found in nine PhD theses now published by the Trust as books:

  • Ross Gilbert Anderson, Assignation (2008)
  • Andrew J M Steven, Pledge and Lien (2008)
  • Craig Anderson, Possession of Corporeal Moveables (2015)
  • Jill Robbie, Private Water Rights (2015)
  • Daniel J Carr, Ideas of Equity (2016)
  • Chathuni Jayathilaka, Sale and the Implied Warranty of Soundness (2019)
  • Alasdair Peterson, Prescriptive Servitudes (2020)
  • Alisdair D J MacPherson, The Floating Charge (2020)
  • John MacLeod, Fraud and Voidable Transfer (2020)
  • Andrew Sweeney, The Landlord’s Hypothec (2021)

The first six of these are available to download free of charge from the Edinburgh Law Seminars website.

Eligibility

The scholarship is open to anyone who, by the start of the PhD programme, holds an honours or a masters degree in law (or equivalent), and who is accepted by the University of Edinburgh for postgraduate study. Preference will be given to those holding a masters degree. A possible route into the PhD is to enrol in the first instance for the one-year degree of LLM by Research (for which the Edinburgh Legal Education Trust also provides a scholarship) and then, if things go well, to switch to the PhD in the course of the year; after switching the student is deemed always to have been registered for the PhD.

Find out more about postgraduate study at Edinburgh Law School

Duration

The scholarship is awarded for one year in the first instance, but will be renewed annually for a further two years, subject to satisfactory progress.

Value

The scholarship will cover tuition fees (at the home level) and provide a stipend with the same value as a studentship awarded by UKRI, approximately £15,700 per year. In addition, a limited amount of assistance may be given by the Trust in respect of research expenses, but this will not normally exceed £400 in a year.

Fees will be paid by the Trust directly to the University of Edinburgh. The maintenance allowance will be paid in four equal instalments on 15 September, 15 December, 15 March and 15 June.

Scholars must inform the Scholarship Administrator of any other awards which they receive during the year. The Trustees reserve the right to review the level of the scholarship in the light of the availability of other funding.

In order to attract the best and brightest PhD students, the University seeks to offer not only unparalleled research facilities and superb supervision, but also to provide development opportunities which will support our research students as they progress beyond their PhD, through this exciting scholarship scheme.

Access

The University of Edinburgh has been working for some time to embed equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in its activities and to widen participation (WP) for students from disadvantaged and underrepresented backgrounds. The Doctoral College is committed to embedding EDI in all of its policies and processes, and by widening access to postgraduate study to traditionally underrepresented groups, including BAME students and those from the most deprived communities in Scotland and the rest of the world. The Doctoral College wishes to attract the greatest diversity of applications to this scheme and will ensure that recruitment processes are robust and unbiased.

Award

Each scholarship covers the University tuition fee as well as a stipend equal to the UKRI minimum rate for the relevant academic year of study, approximately £15,700 per year. Subject to satisfactory progress, the scholarship is offered for 3 and a half years (or pro-rata for part time).

Applicants must have already applied for admission to a full-time or part-time on campus PhD research programme of study at the University. Please note that international students are not eligible for part-time study.

These awards cannot be held concurrently with other fully-funded scholarships but can be held with partially-funded scholarships and will be reduced pro-rata.

Criteria

Applicants must be of outstanding academic merit and research potential. To be considered for this scholarship, you must meet our standard minimum entry requirements.

Other factors such as financial status and nationality are not taken into account.
