The project is open to both European/UK and International students. The successful applicant will be expected to provide the funding for tuition fees and living expenses as well as research costs. A fee bursary may be available for well qualified and motivated applicants.
Applicants are encouraged to contact the Principal Supervisor directly at an early stage to discuss their application and the project. Assistance will be given to those who are applying to international funding schemes.
