FAQs about SICSA studentship applications
After you have applied:
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.
Selection of candidates is by a competitive process where the Graduate Academy Board review 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 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.
