University mission is to facilitate growth and development, and to challenge boundaries, helping students and staff to contribute to human Endeavour by unlocking their own talents. It seeks to nurture ability in all areas, share best practice, and remove institutional barriers to achievement.

International and EU applicants will need to show evidence of a sufficient knowledge of English. This must be proved before applicant begins their course. If they have not achieved the required level before sending their application, their formal offer for postgraduate study will include a condition stating that they need to achieve this level before the start of their course. If they do not reach the required level of proficiency, it will not be possible to admit them onto the course.

Course Level: The studentships are available for pursuing PhD programme.

Study Subject: The studentships are awarded in following departments:

List of Subjects: Art; Biological; Environmental & Rural Sciences (inc.

Award: Successful candidates will receive a grant for up to three years which will cover their tuition fees (up to the UK/EU rate of £4,052) and also provide them with a maintenance allowance of approximately £14,057 per annum and access to a travel and conference fund. Scholarships commence from the main intake: September 2016.
-Non-EU students would have to cover the difference between UK/EU tuition fees and the non-EU tuition fees (approx. £8,198 to £8,448) from their scholarship.

These will be awarded to the three highest ranked non-EU candidates for the AberDoc competition.
