Research studentships

Students discussing a research project.

A research degree studentship gives you the opportunity of full-time research training leading to the award of a research degree at doctoral level.

You would undertake your full-time study on an agreed research programme.

A monthly bursary is awarded during the studentship to cover your living and daily travel expenses. The bursary is not subject to tax.
