CONACYT PhD studentships
CONACyT offers a scholarship programme which aims to send Mexican students on PhDs to study science and technology at top universities around the world.
Queen Mary is pleased to offer CONACyT funded PhD students a variable fee discount to meet the CONACyT maximum contribution. CONACyT will provide a contribution towards your tuition fees each year and Queen Mary will waive the remaining fee. CONACyT will pay a stipend towards living costs to its scholars.
The School of Biological and Behavioural Sciences is pleased to offer up to 12 PhD projects under this scheme to start in 2022/23. Please see below for the available projects.
Eligibility and applying
Applicants must meet the eligibility criteria set out by CONACyT and should also meet the requirements set out under each project description.
Applicants will need to complete an online application form to be considered. Shortlisted applicants will be invited for a formal interview by the project supervisor. Those who are successful in their application for our PhD programme will be issued with an offer letter which is conditional on securing a CONACyT scholarship (as well as any academic conditions still required to meet our entry requirements).
Once applicants have obtained their offer letter from Queen Mary they should then apply to CONACyT for the scholarship as per their requirements and deadlines, with the support of the project supervisor.
Only applicants who are successful in their application to CONACyT can be issued an unconditional offer and enrol on our PhD programme.
