Stipend and Research Support

The value of stipends provided to support Wellcome PhD Studentships is reviewed annually. For the students who are entering in October 2019, the stipend will be no less than £22,278 in year one, rising to at least £26,839 in year four. Stipends are tax free. In addition, there will be funds to support your research including travel to national and international conferences.

Tuition fees

Tuition fees at the rate applicable to Home (EU) students are provided by the Wellcome Trust in support of this 4-year PhD Programme.

Suitably qualified non-EU students are welcome to apply. Non-EU students will be liable for paying the difference between the home and overseas over the four years.  One studentship may be awarded to an exceptional non-EU student to cover the additional costs between home and overseas fees for the four years.

For full details of fees including whether you qualify for a home (EU) student see the Imperial Registry web page.
