Studentship terms and conditions

PhD Studentship terms and conditions

The following terms and conditions apply to all University-administered postgraduate research awards, including those that are funded by the Research Council. In the case of externally-funded awards, the rules of the sponsor take precedence over those of the University.

Full-time postgraduate research students are not deemed to be employed by the University and payments to the student are in the form of a ‘stipend’. The stipend is not considered taxable income by HMRC.
