Applicants must be from the UK/EU and/or registered as liable to pay the University Composition Fee at the Home or EU rate. Students eligible for UK Research Council funding must have applied for such funding or be able to explain why an application to the Research Councils has not been made (e.g. no quota studentships available to the student's department). It is a condition that a successful CHESS student must accept Research Council funding if it is subsequently offered. Home students are eligible for a full studentship (University Composition and College Fees plus a maintenance stipend of £13,226 * per annum in 2013-14). EU students who have been resident in the UK for the three years prior to the start of their doctoral studies for the purposes of work or education are also eligible for a full studentship (University Composition and College Fees plus a maintenance stipend of £13,226* per annum in 2013-14). EU students ordinarily resident in the EU /EEA are eligible for a fees-only award (University Composition and College Fees). EU students in possession of a fees-only Research Council award can be nominated by their department for a maintenance bursary of approx. £6,500* per annum (taking into account other sources of scholarship). Departments may contribute to these awards. Full-time and part-time students are eligible. Awards are for 3 years - no funding is available in the writing up year.
