New postgraduate studentships27 Nov 2009, PR 258/09
The Graduate School at King’s has announced a number of new or significantly altered studentships for those considering studying for a PhD or Masters at the College.
The ‘King’s International Studentships’, which are funded by the College, have had their value increased to £10,000 per year for students beginning their studies in October 2010. Students from any country outside the EU are eligible for these PhD studentships.
King’s has also signed an agreement with the Andalusian regional government for ‘Talentia Excellence Grants’, which provide funding for study at PhD or master’s level. In 2009 there were 250 grants on offer. To be eligible for one of the grants in 2010, students must be resident or have been born in the Andalusia region of Spain and be citizens of a European member state.
The grants consist of University fees and an ample living allowance. Awards are available for the following fields: Management and Marketing; Computing, Maths and IT; Engineering; Humanities; Medicine, Dentistry and Health; Pure and Applied Science; and Social Sciences. Students are being advised to keep checking the Talentia website for the 2010 call for applications.
Professor Vaughan Robinson, Director of the Graduate School, comments: ‘As one of the world’s leading universities, King’s is keen to attract the very best postgraduate students from around the world to our research community, and we are delighted to be able to offer these new scholarships, which will help to make that possible.’

King's has a particularly distinguished reputation in the humanities, law, the sciences (including a wide range of health areas such as psychiatry, medicine and dentistry) and social sciences including international affairs. It has played a major role in many of the advances that have shaped modern life, such as the discovery of the structure of DNA and research that led to the development of radio, television, mobile phones and radar. It is the largest centre for the education of healthcare professionals in Europe; no university has more Medical Research Council Centres.
