The China Scholarship Council and the University of Bristol has announced the new round of their joint scholarship scheme – this year with 60 4-year fully funded PhD studentships available!
The scheme will formally open for applications on the 3rd of October, with a formal submission deadline of 18 January 2019, for a September 2019 start. This is a fantastic opportunity to apply to join the Faul Research Group – if you are interested to explore this scheme then you are encouraged to please contact Prof. Faul as soon as possible.
Please note that having both a good academic record (minimum of two publications) as well as the required English qualifications (see the page here for full details) is crucial for success in this highly competitive scheme.
Charl finally had the chance to visit an old friend, Prof Dan Wang, at the Chinese Academy of Science’s Institute of Process Engineering. Prof Wang and his group focus on the production of functional hollow multi-shell particles for a wide range of energy applications – with some very impressive results!
After an exciting series of talks by PhD students from Prof Wang’s group, Charl gave a seminar and provided an overview of FRG research activities! Here he is being questioned by Prof Wang!
Charl visited the College of Chemistry, Jilin University, in Changchun, for a quick series of presentations and lectures last week! He had the privilege to speak to 300 freshman and a group of 2nd year students from the College of Chemistry about the School of Chemistry at Bristol, and future opportunities for exchange.
He also spoke to a large group of new PhD students (many from the very well-known State Key Laboratory for Supramolecular Structure and Materials) about planning your PhD project and writing scientific papers!
