This 3.5 year fully-funded studentship comes with a significant amount of ring-fenced funding for conference travel.
Eligibility: This is a Research Council funded studentship, and thus only UK students, or EU students who have been resident in the UK for 3 or more years continually, are eligible for an award of a tax-free stipend (~£15k / year) and fees.
