• Our dedicated postgraduate opportunities website Postgraduate Studentships is designed to help students find and apply for PhD Studentships and postgraduate research projects.
  • We work closely with a wide range of predominantly UK Universities from mid-tier to specialist research centres and research intensive internationally ranked institutions with a diverse portfolio.

Entry point packages: Single Study Funding Advert = £50

  • Complete flexibility – no set template, can be used to promote a single PhD Studentship, a group of studentships by subject area/Faculty/DTC/Funding Council or corporately university wide (See example PhD advert listings).
  • Not charged by time – the adverts can be published as early as you like and will last either until a set application deadline date or for up to 12 months.
  • We do the upload – either from the URL to where each studentship is advertised on the institution website or from a word document if the advert is for a group of PhDs for example. Or you can upload your advert yourself from your account page.
  • 24 hours turnaround (usually same working day) Example Studentship Study/Funding Advert.

Study/Funding adverts can be boosted to feature on the PhD and Other Doctoral Study/Funding listings page.

  • In addition, adverts will also show on the first page of all subject browse/search results as a Featured Listing.

We can package the emails for a group price across Academic Departments if required to save money through economies of scale.
