Student Support Service

If you intend to apply for either a PhD placement or a full PhD scholarship under the British Council Newton Fund calls and would like UUKi's assistance with finding a UK host, please complete the form below. We will only respond if there is a call currently open.

Please note:

  • The information that you provide in this form will be used to help us identify potential PhD supervisors and/or host UK universities. In order to do this, the details you provide may need to be shared with several universities.
  • Before completing this form, please firstly ensure that there is a PhD call open that you are eligible to apply to. All open Newton Fund calls are listed here.
  • Depending on which call you are applying to (PhD placement or full PhD), not all sections of the form will be relevant to you. Please try, however, to complete the form as fully as you are able to. Please note that PhD calls will not run in every Newton partner country.
  • Please complete the host request form as soon as possible following the launch of the call and no later than four weeks before the call deadline; applicants should allow at least one month to secure a host UK institution.‚Äč
