The “laudable design” of Hugo de Balsham, as expressed in the College’s founding instruments, was “to introduce scholars in the schools, who are to live together and study in the University of Cambridge; to dwell in the same College forever, and employ themselves with appropriate study, to the praise of God and the perpetual augmentation of the same university.”

Scholarship Description: 

Course Level: Studentships are available to pursue graduate degree (MPhil and Ph.D.) programme.

Study Subject: Studentships are awarded to learn any of the subjects offered by the university.

This is what is meant by ‘full funding’.

Nationality: Home/EU or international students.

Number of Scholarships: Numbers not given.

Scholarship can be taken in the UK

You need to make sure that the Faculty to which you apply also considers you for all University studentships for which you are eligible.  You can check how this is done by consulting the Graduate Admissions Tutor in the Faculty or on the Faculty’s website. Note that your application for a PPh.D.is made to the University and not to Peterhouse.  You can make your application for Peterhouse Graduate Studentships at the same time as your university application. Successful applicants must study at Peterhouse.
