We award a small number of funded doctoral studentships each year.

Studentships are sometimes attached to external grant funding. The PhD project will be specified and open to applications. Please read the details carefully to check that you are eligible as different projects have different requirements.

Studentships for UK students cover tuition fees as well as a maintenance grant. In 2017-18 the maintenance grant for full-time students is £14,553 per annum.
