Each studentship is up to £18,000 plus tuition fees at the UK/EU rate. Non UK applicants must meet the minimum English language requirements, details available here.

International applicants please note: Due to the nature of the EPSRC award the CDT-EI is unable to offer the full international student fees to students from outside of the EU/UK.

If you were invited to and subsequently successful at interview as an international student you would be eligible for UK/EU contribution over four years towards international fees. There is no other assistance provided to international students so you will need to be able to fund the difference between international fees and UK/EU.

Further information about fees can be found here for Loughborough University and here for Heriot Watt University
