The studentship covers full tuition fees for Home or International students, a tax-free maintenance grant equivalent to UKRI studentship rates (currently £15,609) and a research training support grant (currently £750 per year).
For further information, please see Studentships and Stipends and information on maintenance grant levels.

There are a small number of Faculty studentships that also cover an eligible Master’s degree followed by a PhD. Applicants would typically be considered for this route where the applicant does not hold a Masters degree or the prospective supervisor or School admissions director determines that more research training is required prior to commencing the PhD. There is no separate application process for the Master’s component of the studentship, but applicants will need to apply separately for their chosen Master’s course following a discussion with their prospective supervisor. Applicants should submit applications for both the Master’s degree, and the PhD simultaneously. The Master’s component (1+) of the studentship is awarded through a Faculty-wide competition, based on recommendations from each of the Schools within the Faculty.
Funding for the Master’s component (1+) covers fees and a maintenance grant at standard UKRI rates. This is similar to the SeNSS studentship scheme.
