Imperial College President’s Scholarship Details:

Imperial College London is a world top ten university with an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research.

Applications will be reviewed by a two-stage process:

Successful candidates will receive written confirmation of their scholarship. Any offer of a PhD place will be conditional on final interview by the Department and (if applicable) on the candidate receiving the predicted qualifications.
