This project is open to applicants who are able to obtain their own funding for tuition fee, consumable laboratory costs and living expenses.
A fees bursary may be available for suitably qualified applicants.
The 2016-17 PhD tuition fees are: UK/EU students £4,052.00 p.a.; international students £18,000.00.
In addition fees of between £1,000 and £12,000 per year are required for research costs depending on the type of project. An estimated maintenance allowance of £820 per month is required to cover accommodation, meals, transport etc.
The above figures are for guidance only, details will be provided when an offer is made.
