Leverhulme Doctoral Scholars will receive maintenance costs at Research Council rates and tuition fees at the rate for UK/EU students. In 2018-19 the maintenance grant for full-time students was £14,777 per annum. International applicants who can pay the difference between the Home and International Fees would also be welcome to apply.
Selection will be made on the basis of academic merit. Candidates will require an honours degree at 2.1 or above in chemistry or a related discipline.
