FAQs about SICSA studentship applications

Once you have applied

Selection of candidates is by a competitive process where we look at the
student's academic achievements, referees reports, research proposal,
publications and experience. The research proposal is particularly important as
this helps us judge how well a candidate has thought about their research, how
well the research fits with the SICSA themes and the potential cross-site
supervisory arrangements.

Your studentship application will be considered by the universities that you
have listed in your application. They will decide, on the basis of the
information in your application, if they wish to nominate you for a SICSA
studentship. If they do so, your application will be considered by the Graduate
Academy Board.

Your first choice university may decide not to nominate your application for a
studentship. In this case, your details will be passed to any other universities
that you have included in your application and they may decide to support your
application. Applications from students who are not nominated by one of the
SICSA partners will not be considered for a prize studentship.
