In autumn 2020, UKRI surveyed research organisations on their UKRI-funded final-year students identified as needing an extension for their doctoral studies.
This report is an analysis of survey responses. It includes information on:
- extensions requested and awarded
- extension length requests
- equality, diversity and inclusion characteristics of doctoral students requesting
- reasons for extension requests.
All students in this analysis had a funding end-date between 1 March 2020 and 31 March 2021.
UKRI will publish data and analysis relating to phase two of the extensions policy later in 2021.
