The research projects listed below are available in the School for the 2018/19 intake, and the best applicant will be awarded the funding:
|Tuition fee support||Full UK/EU tuition fees|
|Maintenance stipend||Doctoral stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum|
|Additional funding offered||Additional funding is available over the course of the programme and will cover costs such as research consumables, training, conferences and travel.|
|Residency||UK Research Council eligibility conditions apply|
Applicants should have obtained, or be about to obtain, a First or Upper Second Class UK Honours degree, or the equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK. Applicants with a Lower Second Class degree will be considered if they also have a Master’s degree.
Applicants with a minimum Upper Second Class degree and significant relevant non-academic experience are encouraged to apply.
The Doctoral Training Partnership welcomes applications from both UK and EU applicants; however, as a consequence of the EU referendum result, final award decisions will depend on the outcomes of the UK/EU negotiations.
Full awards (fees plus maintenance stipend) are open to UK Nationals and EU students who can satisfy UK residency requirements. To be eligible for the full award, EU Nationals must have been in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the course for which they are seeking funding, including for the purposes of full-time education.
A small number of awards may also be made available to EU Nationals who do not meet the above residency requirement, provided that they have been ordinarily resident in the EU for at least 3 years prior to the start of their proposed programme of study.
Enquiries on individual student eligibility for EPSRC DTP studentships should be made to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Consideration is automatic upon application for admission to the Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics with a October 2018 start date.
In the "Research proposal and Funding" section of your application, please specify the project title and supervisors of this project and copy the project description in the text box provided.
