Join Global Friends

The Global Friends project is where you can meet a British student socially and is a great way to get to know British culture and Sheffield too.  The British student may also ask you a few questions about the way English is taught in your home country as part of research they are undertaking.

If you are interested in this project please complete the online form:

It is VERY IMPORTANT that you ask an international friend to complete the form as well so they can join you at the meeting, so you must meet in groups of 2 or 3.  The British student will arrange the meeting at a time that is convenient to you both.

PhD Scholarships for International and EU applicants

30 fully funded PhD scholarships for September 2015

The scholarships are for home, EU and international applicants. They cover your tuition fees (at home/EU levels) and provide maintenance at Research Council UK levels – £14,057 for 2015/16 – for three years of full-time study, normally commencing in September/October 2015.  Therefore as an international applicant, you would have to find another source of funding to cover the cost difference between home/EU and international fees.

If you are interested in applying for a PhD scholarship, the deadline for all applications is 12 noon on Friday 20 March 2015.
