Full payment of tuition fees at Research Councils UK fee level for year of entry (£4,270 in 2018/19), to be paid by the University;
An annual maintenance grant at current UK Research Councils rates (national minimum doctoral stipend for 2018/19 is £14,764), to be paid in monthly instalments to the Leverhulme Trust Doctoral Scholar by the University.
All studentships will come with a minimum of £3,000 Research Training Support Grant. This can be increased up to a maximum of £12,000. Supervisors should indicate from where any further costs necessary for the project will be sourced.
