Fees and Maintenance

My fee status is:

I shall have the following financial dependants:

Your Estimated Annual Commitment:

Component Cost
University Composition Fee £9,387
Maintenance £17,668
Total Annual Commitment £27,055

The CDT funding includes attendance at the integrated training courses and visits to nuclear facilities and laboratories in the UK and overseas. However, some additional costs may be incurred in relation to PhD-associated research trips or long-term attachments, bespoke to the individual student and project. These could also include equipment, books, IT, photocopying, bespoke training, and travel for conferences and summer schools.

Supervisors are often able to cover or contribute towards these costs, depending on the financial resources available. Where not possible, or where research-related costs are not specifically included in a stipend, or if students are self-funded, students will usually be expected to find additional funding elsewhere, e.g. University/College. 

Applicants should be aware that the University Composition Fee is charged for 12 terms (four years, full-time) for this course.
