What about Student Support?

Most EE postgraduate students are supported by Research Studentships. Typically a studentship pays the full tuition fee and provides a tax-free monthly stipend for the tenure of the appointment. Studentships are offered by the recruiting laboratory / group on a competitive basis when available. Some interviews and student visits may be arranged in order to determine the level of shared interest between the student and the group. International students are offered 12-month appointments wherever possible, in order for them to meet visa requirements. Responsibility for securing a research studentship remains with the student.

Alternatively students can apply directly for an IRCSET studentship ( Any applicants eligible for IRCSET awards should seek guidance from the EE staff member with whom he/she wishes to work before making the application.
