Detailed candidate requirements and a supervisor contact email are provided on the project descriptions. Please email the supervisor if you have any questions about the project or eligibility.
Applications for full studentships are open to UK and EU residents. A very limited number of studentships may be available to international students. Residency rules are complex and your eligibility will be checked upon shortlisting.
