PhD Scholarships

UK, EU and Overseas PhD students will receive a scholarship of £24,000 per year for up to three years of full-time study. For UK and EU students, the scholarship will cover university fees and provide a minimum stipend of £16,000 per year. For Overseas students, total funding is capped at £24,000 per year.

Scholarships are attached to each research topic so applicants do not need to apply for them separately, and your eligibility will be assessed during the recruitment process.

No tuition fees for Aston MSc thanks to Apprenticeship Levy

The course can be funded through the Apprenticeship Levy in which case there are no tuition fees to pay; the total fee would be met by the government in England and the student’s employer. More information about how apprenticeship funding works is available on the Department for Education website.

Alternatively, it is possible to enrol as a fee paying student with sponsorship from your employer. Students may also be eligible to apply for a loan towards the cost of studying which is administered by Student Finance England.

Eligibility and options for funding will be discussed during the enrolment process.
