Studentship Academic & Residence Eligiblity

Our BBSRC DTP studentship award is for UK/EU residents only who meet the BBSRC residency criteria of 'established UK residency.' Candidates for BBSRC training awards must normally hold a first or upper second class UK honours degree, or the equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK, in an appropriate area of study. Please refer to the Apply section for additional information.

Studentship Funding

The award will cover the cost of tuition fees with additional institutional support for those also enrolled in a Masters programme. The funding also provides an annual, tax-free living stipend at the standard RCUK rate with London weighting. The amount is currently at £16,777pa for the 18/19 Academic Year with incremental annual increases according to the GDP deflator. Additional financial support is allocated yearly towards the cost of research, conference travel attendance, and other relevant trainings.
