The fully funded studentships cover tuition fees, stipend and bench fees.

Tuition fees: Tuition fees will be covered by the programme.

Stipend: Students will receive an enhanced stipend for each year of study (approx. £21,750).

Bench fees: An allowance will be provided for research consumables, trainings and conference attendance.

Eligibility: The Admissions Portal will assign you a provisional fee status (Home, EU or Overseas) based on the information included in your application, but this will be reviewed by the Admissions team when they process your application. After Brexit, all students will be categorised by Admissions as either Home or Overseas. We have up to two studentships available for overseas applicants.
