Studentships and doctoral training


London weighting, enhanced stipends and co-funding

Some students receive a stipend that is above the minimum level set by us.  It is up to your university to determine how stipends above the UKRI minimum will be adjusted.

If you are a student and need more information on your stipend, contact your research organisation.

Co-funders should account for the annual stipend increase in the usual manner. We expect co-funders to play their full role in supporting students. We will continue to support with our contribution towards a student’s stipend.

For more information on our approach, read the UKRI terms and conditions for training funding.
