Our fully funded studentships include a maintenance grant of £14,777 per year to contribute towards living expenses during the course of your research, as well as a fee waiver for 36 months. Each year we offer fully funded doctoral opportunities for outstanding candidates who will undertake defined research projects that will enhance our thriving research culture and offer even more potential for societal or cultural impact and commercial exploitation.
