CENTRE FOR EARTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE RESEARCH (CEESR)
KINGSTON UNIVERSITY (LONDON)
The following hard-rock and related PhD topics have been proposed for
the coming research student intake in October 2001. A number of
studentships will be available and the competition will be based on
which project attracts the best-qualified applicants.
ADDITIONALLY, THERE IS ONE STUDENTSHIP AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY.
Students interested in any of these projects should contact the named
supervisors directly for further particulars and details of the
proposed research. Alternatively, enquiries can be made through Mrs
Stella Bignold ([log in to unmask]).
Please note that CEESR cannot offer full fee support for overseas
(non-EU) students directly. It is possible to apply for funding to
bridge the gap between home/EU and overseas tuition fees.
Nevertheless, non-EU students should try to secure separate funding
from sources in their own countries.
