Terms and conditions

These studentships can be held alongside other University of York awards (eg our partnership studentships) but the total sum awarded cannot exceed the full-time tuition fee for the award holder. In this event, the total sum awarded will be capped.

Applicants who are liable to pay fees at the international rate will be required to pay all outstanding fees due once any awards have been discounted.
