Curious about a fully funded PhD studentship abroad?

On Thursday October 4th, The University Grants Council of Hong Kong will be giving a talk and offering a Q and A session about fully funded studentships (officially called ‘Fellowships’) available at several Hong Kong universities.  The studentships are open to candidates of any nationality from any academic discipline. The Fellowship provides a monthly stipend of HK$20,000 (approximately US$2,600) and a conference and research related travel allowance of HK$10,000 (approximately US$1,300) per year for each awardee for a period of three years. About 135 PhD Fellowships will be awarded each academic year.

Just a few little points of interest  about Higher Education in Hong Kong:

Hong Kong has 3 universities in the QS Top 50:  University of Hong Kong comes in at 20, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology at 33 and the China University of Hong Kong at 40.  The City University Hong Kong ranks 95th in the world and the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, 159th.  (All institutions have improved their standing in the rankings since last year.)  Hong Kong has some of the most internationalised university faculties in the world.  English is the medium of instruction for most courses in Hong Kong universities.

To find out more about the event, visit the Careers Service’s Talks and Events pages.  Staff and alumni are also welcome to attend.
