Fees &

We have 50 fully funded places to offer between 2014-2019.  Eligibility for funding will be determined on review of an application form. A full award includes;

  • Full Fees grant paid directly to the University for four years
  • A maintenance grant paid monthly to students to cover living expenses. This is tax free, and set by the EPSRC, for the 2015/16 academic year the rate is set at £14,000 per year.
  • A Research Training grant to cover PhD consumables, training, and conference attendance. We anticipate all students will attend and present at at least one international conference.

Students who are from the UK or UK Home Rated for their fee status are normally eligible for the full funding award above.

We are able to offer one fully funded place to EU students per year, after this award we are able to award Fees and Research training grant funding only to successful EU applicants.

We welcome international fee rated students who are able to self-fund their studies, but unfortunately we are not currently in a position to award funding to international fee rated applicants. Should our fund raising make this possible we will advertise accordingly.
