EPSRC studentships are restricted to UK or EU residents. Residents of
the UK are eligible for fees and a maintenance allowance; other EU
residents are eligible for fees only (and so would need to be able to
support themselves during their studies). The EPSRC baseline rate of
maintenance allowance is currently approx 6,455 pounds sterling per
annum. For further general information on EPSRC studentships, please
consult:

 http://www.epsrc.ac.uk

The University funded studentship is at the same rate and is not restricted.

Students are normally expected to be closely affiliated to an ongoing project
within the ITRI. For additional information please look at our web site:
