This PhD will provide 3.5 years funding for UK or EU students. Students from outside those areas will be considered, but should be aware of the need to obtain additional funding to cover the difference between ‘home’ and ‘overseas’ fees. Enquiries from Chinese nationals are also particularly welcomed as the University of St Andrews has additional funding opportunities for Chinese students.
