Fully-funded PhD projects

Our studentships are fully-funded by UK Research Councils, charities or industry.


Projects funded by BBSRC, NERC and MRC are only available for UK and EU students who meet the UK residency requirements (minimum of three years continuous residency in UK immediately prior to the start of the PhD).

Projects funded by charities, for example, the British Heart Foundation, Breast Cancer Now and Versus Arthritis are open to all UK and EU students.

The studentships cover:

  • an annual tax-free stipend at the standard Research Council rate (£15,009 for 2019-2020), but typically increases annually in line with inflation)
  • research costs
  • tuition fees at the UK/EU rate.


Eligibility can vary across projects, so please check the details before applying. Tier 4 students are not eligible for fully-funded projects.

Please try to identify a project that suits you to ensure a proper match between your research interests and prospective supervisors. We do not recommend applying for more than one project, but please have informal discussions with us if you are interested in more than one project.
