Becas doctorales en la Universidad de Westminster


Becas doctorales en la Universidad de Westminster, Londres. Muy estimados amigos comparto esta convocatoria que nos extiende Mireya Marquez Ramirez

El CAMRI de la Universidad de Westminster es el Departamento de medios mejor posicionado en Reino Unido en la evaluación RAE 2008 (con el que se evalúa la calidad y alcance internacional de la investigación de las universidades británicas) y es de los poquísimos en el país que ofrece becas doctorales todo pagado: incluye colegiaturas y además mensualidades generosas (por
arriba de las que da el Conacyt o el British Council) para alojamiento.

Aprovechen mandar su solicitud, el proceso lógicamente, es muy competido, pero el profesorado es mundialmente reconocido y sus líneas de investigación siempre van a la vanguardia.
