GCHQ-Sponsored PhD Studentships

These are PhDs sponsored by GCHQ.  Their duration is 3.5 years and include an internship at GCHQ. 

Academic Requirements: A minimum 2.1 honours degree or equivalent in Computer Science, Electrical and Electronic Engineering or relevant degree is required. This is a GCHQ-sponsored PhD studentship; therefore, only UK nationals are eligible for this funding. GCHQ will be offering the student an opportunity to work more closely with them – e.g., via a short secondment or attendance at technical meetings. As such, the recipient of this studentship will have to be appropriately security cleared by GCHQ before they start their doctoral studies. A maintenance grant of approx. £22,500 each year (tax-free) is available.
