During the period, the students are required to work each year at SACO for 70% of the total time, participating in research and practical projects of the institute, and to study at the University for the rest of time. SACO will fund the studentsâ tuition fee, as well as the maintenance in Sheffield (equivalent to standard UK Government studentship level), and pay salary to the students when they work at the institute.
The candidates should have a master degree in relevant fields, and candidates with over two-year full time equivalent working experience in practice and/or professional qualifications will be given priorities. The candidates should apply follow the application procedure of the University of Sheffield, supplying the required documents, including transcripts, language certificate, etc. For detailed information, please visit: www.sheffield.ac.uk/postgraduate/research/apply.
