College studentships

College studentships are usually awarded for three years for a full-time student and six years pro-rata for a part-time student. They are awarded in one of the following ways:

• Combined fee and maintenance awards (for which the maintenance level for 20/21 is £17,285 per annum)

• A financial contribution towards either fees or maintenance

• A fee award (either Home/EU or international).

Students in receipt of a College studentship over £10,000 per annum may be expected to assist with teaching or other academic duties for up to six hours per week during term-time.

There is no central application process for College studentships and recipients are normally selected by Departments. You should indicate a wish to be considered for a College studentship to your supervisor or the Director of Postgraduate Education in the relevant Department.

You can also gain funding for your studies from the Research Councils

A fee award (either Home/EU or international).  Students who have either industry or overseas Government sponsorship for their full stipend can apply for one of these awards and should discuss this option with their proposed Supervisor.
