There are important differences in residency requirements and stipend for the studentships available. Applicants should take special note of the eligibility requirements below.

Eligibility
Wellcome Trust Funded PhD studentships

Academic qualifications

All applicants will be required to satisfy standard UCL academic and English language entry criteria, including minimum upper-second class (2.1) honours degree (or overseas equivalent) in a relevant subject.

Residence eligibility

Overseas applicants may apply but should note that they are eligible only to receive the maintenance stipend and tuition fees paid at the home/EU rate. Such applicants will therefore have to fund the difference in fees between the home/EU rate and the overseas rate (a difference of £16,400 per annum for the academic year 2015/16).

Wellcome Trust studentship award details

Successful applicants will receive a 4-year Wellcome Trust PhD studentship including a tax-free maintenance stipend of £22,278 per annum (2015/16 rate) and tuition fees paid in full at the home/EU rate.
