At the University of Huddersfield, we’re passionate about research; seeking to solve the problems and answer the questions posed by industry, science and society. To help us make this difference, we seek the very best Huddersfield graduates to participate in our Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship Scheme, which gives those selected access to a full tuition fee waiver on their research degree.


Our Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship Scheme provides a full fee waiver on either full-time or part-time research degrees, meaning the recipient will not be charged tuition fees for their research degree. This waiver applies to eligible research degrees starting from September 2020 and is open to home, EU and international candidates.

Our Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship Scheme is a competitive application process and to be eligible you must have achieved one of the following:

  • A first class honours degree
  • A distinction at taught Master’s


  • Have been recommended on the basis of your Master’s by Research by your supervisor and academic school
  • Have graduated from the University of Huddersfield in the last three years. If you are due to graduate in the current academic year, then any offer will be conditional on your degree outcome



  • Our Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship Scheme is available for research undertaken on either a full-time or part-time basis.
  • Research degrees include the following awards; PhD, Doctor of Business Administration (DBA), Doctor of Education (EdD), Doctor of Enterprise (EntD), Doctor of Public Administration (DPA), Master of Arts by Research, Master of Science by Research and Master of Enterprise.
  • Our Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship Scheme is available for the standard registration period only; for doctoral awards this will be either 3 years full-time or 6 years part-time and for Master’s by Research awards this will be either 1 year full time or 2 years part time.
