Funding includes a tax free stipend and fees as well as supporting travel and equipment costs. A fully-funded studentship consists of full fees and stipend of approximately £17,009 for the MRes year. On successful completion of the MRes this will rise to £18,009/£20,009 per year dependent on whether you do an industry funded PhD.

Due to constraints from our funding agencies, there are different rules for funding depending on your fee status:

  • UK and EU students: Full funding (fees and stipend) is available.
  • Non-EU students: Exceptional overseas applicants may be considered for a limited number of funded places.
