Southampton Law School PhD Scholarships

In 2015, Uncategorized on December 3, 2015 at 8:19 am

A little bit left-field for a HEAL blog post, but in the interests of disseminating to a wider audience, and encouraging future Health Care Law and Ethics PhD students, please find details below & on jobs.ac.uk of scholarships at Southampton Law School. Please note the closing date is 11 January 2016.


Southampton Law School has Studentships available for postgraduate research students admitted full time onto its MPhil/PhD programme and commencing their studies in October 2016. The studentships will last for a maximum of three years (subject to an annual review of progress) and will provide a maintenance allowance of £14,000 per annum, in addition to payment of tuition fees. Successful candidates will be expected to contribute up to 40 hours per year of teaching activities, at the discretion of the Head of School. The awards are available in any area of legal research for which the School can offer expert supervision. This includes (but is not limited to) areas connected to the School’s research centres:

Centre for European Law 
Centre for Health Ethics and Law 
Centre for Law, Ethics and Globalisation 
Institute of Criminal Justice Research
Institute for Law and the Web 
Institute of Maritime Law 
Insurance Law Group 

For further information on the work of these Centres, see here

Please note the following:

Tuition fees will be paid in full by the School. 

  • To be eligible for consideration, the full application must be submitted by the submission deadline of Monday 11 January 2016. This includes the standard application form, research proposal, CV, and other supporting documentation (transcripts, reference letters, IELTS certificates where necessary, etc.). For the avoidance of doubt, if any of the documents listed have not been submitted by the closing date you will not be eligible for the scholarship.
  • You will also need to allow time to participate in an interview (the interview may take place shortly after the application deadline of Monday 11 January 2016) and for your prospective supervisor(s) to provide a statement of support.
  • These studentships are for full time candidates only. If you are awarded this studentship and transfer to part time registration, you will be deemed to have withdrawn from the studentship.

The Southampton Law School is a vibrant, research-led department. It has a growing and active community of postgraduate research students whose research extends to all areas of the School’s expertise. For further information on our research degrees, including profiles of current students and the application process, see here.
Applicants must apply online, following the normal process, for admission to the MPhil/PhD programme, stating that they wish to be considered for the studentship, by Monday 11 January 2016.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr Emma Laurie, PGR Programme Director, at Emma.Laurie@soton.ac.uk or Professor Filippo Lorenzon, PGR Admissions Tutor, at F.Lorenzon@soton.ac.uk.
