This project is funded by a DAFM/DAERA Partnership to support collaborative research in agreed priority areas across both jurisdictions. The studentship provides funding for tuition fees, stipend and research training and support grant subject to eligibility.
Please note that the studentship will cover a maximum of €6,000 per annum of the QUB tuition fees for non-EEA students. Non-EEA students may also be required to apply for a visa in order to travel from the UK to the Republic of Ireland.
