A PhD is the highest academic qualification you can achieve and is awarded on the successful completion of extensive and original research in your chosen field.

There are two main routes to study for a PhD at Edinburgh Napier. We advertise PhD positions through Find a PhD and you can search through those below to see if any match the areas of research that interest you. We also advertise MRes opportunities in this way as well.

Alternatively, you can apply for a PhD or MRes based on a research idea you have developed independently. If you choose this route, we recommend that you identify a suitable supervisor at Edinburgh Napier University with expertise in this area. Whichever route you choose, you’ll need to develop a research proposal. You can find more information about this and other useful advice on how to apply, including finding a supervisor, here .

Some PhDs are fully funded, which means the fees are paid and you will receive a stipend as living expenses. Some may be part-funded, which means only the fees are covered. However, other PhDs, including those based on your own research idea, may not be funded at all and you will have to cover the fees and living expenses yourself. You can find out more about fees and sources of funding here

We lay out the key steps you need to follow to make sure you put together a really strong application

“The idea of doing cutting-edge science in a new field really appealed to me.”
