Phyllis Barclay-Smith Studentships

The College intends to award one Phyllis Barclay-Smith Studentship to support a student from Malawi but, failing this, the College will use the studentship to fund an international student in any PhD subject.  

The PhD Studentship is for three years subject to satisfactory progress in the first year. The studentship usually covers University fees and a maintenance allowance. The final value of the Studentship is determined after consideration of the successful candidate's income from other sources. Students should also apply for studentships or other research awards for which they may be eligible.

Candidates are expected to be of outstanding academic ability. Tenure of the Barclay-Smith Studentship is conditional upon the elected student being accepted for admission to the University by the Postgraduate Admissions Office (PAO). Preference is given to those who put Caius as their first-choice college. The award of a studentship may be conditional upon the candidate's obtaining satisfactory results in their final degree examinations.
