We are particularly keen to see applications from international students who are not citizens of the UK or the European Union.

We have a large number of international postgraduate students registered for both Masters and PhD programmes as well as extensive staff experience in the delivery of high quality training and support.

Many international students are eligible for one of a number of prestigious studentship awards and we encourage you to explore the following avenues:

  • Durham Doctoral Studentships - The Faculty of Social Sciences & Health (which includes the Department of Geography) has available a number of prestigious Durham Doctoral Studentships for new, high-calibre PhD students
  • The British Council hosts information on a range of scholarships for study in the UK. It has an excellent search engine for scholarship information (see the 'Scholarship Search' boxes on the page)
  • CSFP Awards administered by the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission, for Citizens of the Commonwealth
  • Contact your Ministry of Education or local British Council Office who will also be able to advise on scholarship opportunities
