Candidates will be interviewed, usually via telephone or Skype, as part of the selection process. EU and International applicants may be required to provide evidence of competence in the English Language.

The studentship covers tuition fees (UK/EU rates), a tax-free maintenance grant (currently £14,296 per year), and a research training support grant. Please contact the Director of Postgraduate Research, Dr Martin Doherty, or the Topic Supervisor.
