satisfy standard UCL academic
language entry criteria, including minimum upper-second class (2.1)
honours degree (or overseas equivalent) in a relevant subject.

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 2016/17).
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 (2016/17 rate) and
