IMPaCT students are fully funded studentships which include:
• A full UK/EU fee waiver for 4 years
• An annual tax free stipend of £14,777 (2018/19)
• Possibility of additional top up for industry sponsored projects.
• Generous Research Training Support Grant.
A limited amount of partial funding is available for exceptional international applicants who are highly qualified and motivated. Due to the nature of this funding, the CDT would only be able to cover the cost of the Home/EU fees and therefore the applicant would need to either find alternative funding or self-fund the fee difference
