The Queen Mary University of London provides fully funded scholarship to candidates pursuing PhD in Intellectual Property. Known as the Herchel Smith PhD Scholarship, it recognizes and supports exceptional full-time students who show the potential to make an outstanding contribution to intellectual property law. Also, this programme supports PhD students in intellectual property law and those working at the intersection of intellectual property law and other areas of sciences and humanities.

Further, as a specialization in the field of law, the Intellectual Property research degree entails candidates taking research topic as

  • IPRs and public international law/private international law
  • IPRs and intangible cultural/scientific heritage
  • IPRs and human rights
  • Doctrine of functionality
  • The role of intellectual property law in promoting and regulating art
  • the intersection of international trade and intellectual property law
  • intellectual property transactions etc.

The award covers three years of study while in full-time enrolment, subject to satisfactory annual progress reports. Successful recipients of this award will undertake research support work as well as any related tasks as required, of up to 6 hours per week for the duration of their studies, for the Queen Mary Intellectual Property law Research Institute (QMIPRI).


The award will cover all tuition fees, whether at the Home/EU rate or the overseas rate. It is therefore open to both UK and non-EU applicants. In addition, an award of around £16,700 per year (reviewed annually) is payable to the recipient on a regular basis throughout the academic year starting from September 2019.


  • The award is for new applicants who will enroll at the start of the coming academic year, in September 2019.  Therefore, current PhD students who enrolled prior to September 2019 are not eligible to apply for the award.
  • PhD programme is dependent upon applicants obtaining a certain grade on their LLM, so as to meet our academic entry requirements
