Due to funding restrictions
UK students are eligible for a full award (stipend and fees).
EU students who have been âordinarily residentâ in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the grant are eligible for a full award (stipend and fees). This means they must have been normally residing in the UK (apart from temporary or occasional absences).
EU students who are ordinarily resident in a member state of the EU are generally eligible for a fees-only award.
Applicants should have a minimum of a 2:1 honours degree in materials science, material engineering, aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, or physics.
The studentship covers UK/EU tuition fees (please see residency requirements for EU students), a stipend of Â£15226 per annum, plus an industrial ‘top up’ of up to Â£5000 per annum.
