Research Council (RC) fees and stipend can only be awarded to UK and EU students and not to EEA or International students. EU students are only eligible for RC stipend if they have been resident in the UK for 3 years, including for study purposes, immediately prior to starting their PhD. If an EU student cannot fulfil this condition then they are eligible for a fees only studentship.
