Postgraduate research studentships
The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences offers fully funded postgraduate research studentships to support PhD students each year.
Our PhD studentships are usually attached to a specific research project and cover the cost of tuition fees as well as providing a maintenance stipend. Funding is normally for up to 3 years at the UK Research Council level. Our studentship funding typically comes from the university, Research Councils, or other external organisations through research grants. Some of the funding available is limited to UK residents. Full details of the funding available is provided on the project page.
