Funding and Eligibility
The bursaries are offered on a full-time basis to EU/UK and overseas applicants and cover a maintenance award and fee payments (at the UK/EU rate, currently £14,057 and £4,052 respectively). The Scholarships are for three years, subject to satisfactory progress. The level of the maintenance element of the Scholarships is linked to the level of corresponding awards made by UK research councils and is subject to regular review. The studentship bursaries are free of both tax and national insurance contributions.
In addition to work on the doctoral research project, successful applicants will be expected to contribute to associated activities within their respective Schools. International Applicants will be required to cover the difference between the UK/EU and International Student fee (currently£6448pa).
Applicants must have a minimum of a first or an upper second class honours degree or equivalent, and preferably a good Masters degree, in a relevant area. If your first language is not English, you should have a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 (with a minimum of 6.0 in each component).
