We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.
We will hold many more of these online chat events over the coming months so please check www.pg.bham.ac.uk now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Saturday 23 November 2019. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.
If I have won the government scholarship, is it possible to win the funding as well for supporting other things else?
I’m not sure that I understand the question. Hopefully, your application for a scholarship is successful and will provide sufficient funding for the cost of studying for a PhD. In some cases additional funding may be available (e.g. if your research links closely to a research project by your supervisor), but I would encourage you to contact potential supervisors first to discuss whether this might be possible.
Do I need to find the project topic for PhD on that site first? If I have won the government scholarship and they need me to study in different areas of those, what should I do?
Many thanks for your question and your interest in studying for a PhD at Birmingham. I think you will find it useful to approach potential supervisors in Geography, Earth and Env. Sciences who will be able to help you develop a proposal for postgraduate study. You’ll need to include a proposal with your application – but hopefully this will also help strengthen your application for a government scholarship to fund your studies.
Welcome to this Live Q&A about the postgraduate opportunities in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences. Dr Chris Bradley, Senior Lecturer in Geography and Environmental Science, is now online until 11:00 to answer your questions.
Your question will be posted on this feed once it has been answered, which might take a little time if we receive a lot of questions. Please don’t worry if you don’t see your question and its answer immediately – you only need to submit each question once and keep an eye on the feed for when the answer is posted.
