Scholarship Description: Full-time MPhil/PhD scholarships awarded by the University cover the costs of full-time tuition, and provide a maintenance grant. For the academic year 2015-2016 the maintenance grant is set at £11,700 [currently under review] (subject to review in subsequent years). If a scholarship holder already holds a scholarship from, or is otherwise financially supported by, another organisation, and the University considers that scholarship or other form of support to be sufficient to cover maintenance and tuition fees, the scholarship holder will not be eligible for a full-time scholarship from the University. If a University scholarship holder is subsequently granted an additional scholarship or an equivalent form of support, he or she will not be entitled to a full University scholarship from the date on which the new scholarship or other form of support begins. Scholarship holders may undertake a small amount of other paid work (normally up to one day per week) whether in term time or vacation, provided that they notify the Head of the Graduate School. It should be noted however that the University does not encourage such work especially during the times scholarship holders are expected to be engaged fully in research training and thesis preparation.
