Studentships EU postgrad students

Research Council studentships for postgraduate research remain open to non-UK EU students starting courses in the 2017-2018 academic year.

The funding support will cover the duration of their course, even if the course concludes after the UK has left the EU.

The government will maintain its support of the UK’s world leading science and research sector by continuing to welcome the best minds from across Europe to study in the UK.

The importance of international science and research collaboration was reaffirmed with the announcement that EU nationals beginning courses in the 2017-2018 academic year will remain eligible for postgraduate training support from the UK’s Research Councils on the current basis.
