The award will pay full tuition fees and a maintenance grant for 3.5 years. The maintenance grant will be £14,777 pa for 2018-19.
Depending on the successful applicant (EU or non-EU) this studentship would include a commitment to work up to 144 hours per academic year to help with teaching-related activities in modules currently taught in the Department of Chemistry, as assigned by the Head of Department or his representative. The award will pay full home/EU tuition fees and a maintenance grant for 3.5 years. Non-EU applicants may have to contribute to the higher non-EU overseas fee.
