Information for Prospective Students


All DTC studentships for 2013-2014 have now been awarded. 

How to apply 

We are not currently recruiting for this Neuroinformatics DTC 1+3 programme. When additional studentships become available for 2015 and beyond, we will announce them here.  Meanwhile, please consider applying to our sister programme, EuroSPIN.  

You may also wish to apply for a PhD via the School of Informatics Institute for Adaptive and Neural Computation, noting an interest in Neuroinformatics in your online application. You are welcome to approach academic members of the DTC regarding potential supervision of a PhD project.  Alternatively, you can apply for the Neural Computation specialism of the MSc in Artificial Intelligence, which will allow you to take many of the same courses we offer in the DTC.

All Applications should be made via the University's online application system  EUCLID. See the 'How to Apply' information.

At this time there is no funding available specifically for the Neuroinformatics DTC, but interested applicants may be eligible for funded PhD studentships via the School of Informatics. 

Study for a PhD in Neuroinformatics generally involves fees payable to the University and funding to cover the costs of living in Edinburgh for the duration of study. Studentships will cover all of these costs in most cases. The following sites provide information on these costs if you are considering applying under your own funding.

Unlike in some countries, it is usually not possible to support your PhD by teaching jobs at the university or by taking outside employment concurrently, and so you must be able to demonstrate that you have external funding before you will be able to enroll.

The following sites provide information on alternative funding programmes.
