Any prospective doctoral student wishing to study at a UK research organisation, including international students, is eligible for studentship funding from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), including the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Awards to international students are limited, however, and will not normally exceed 30% of the total awards in any one year.
All UKRI-funded doctoral students are eligible for a full award, comprising a stipend to support living costs and fees up to the home rate. The DTP partners will cover the gap between the home and overseas fee rates for international students.
This is a change in the criteria and will come into force for the start of the 2021/22 academic year.
The university via which you apply is responsible for assessing your fee status; the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP team cannot advise you on this. For further guidance, please see the relevant university webpages:
More information about fee status assessment is available on the UKCISA website. UKCISA is a national advisory body that provides general guidance on international student issues. Please note that UKCISA does not carry out assessments of individual circumstances.
