This studentship is being funded as part of UEA’s commitment to the Office for Students to supporting Widening Participation. This studentship is funded for 3 (or possibly 4) years and comprises home/EU fees, and for the period of PhD study, an annual stipend of £14,777 and £1,000 per annum to support research training. International students are welcome to apply, but will need to meet the difference between Home and International fees.
