Financial Support

Electrical Engineering and Electronics offers a number of EPSRC and industry sponsored research studentships. Most of the projects have close industrial links as well as interaction with other research groups in the UK, Europe and the Far East. Some suitable candidates may be offered Research Assistantships each year but often this is on completion of a very satisfactory first year of study. EPSRC studentships are often enhanced by contributions from industry. Many research students supplement their incomes by undertaking some teaching duties in undergraduate laboratories. Further information can be obtained from Professor J W Bradley, Director of Graduate Studies. Details of other awards available for international students can be found at www.liv.ac.uk international/money-and-scholarships/ postgraduate.htm

A limited number of bursaries and studentships are available. Electrical Engineering and Electronics is able to fund a number of studentships through the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council Doctoral Training Award (DTA) scheme which is linked to the research grant income from EPSRC. Their duration is normally three and a half years starting in October each year and cover tuition fees for UK and EU students and a stipend for UK residents only. DTA awards can be subsequently upgraded to a Co-operative Awards in Science and Engineering (CASE) which provides additional experience and support from industry. DTA applications should be submitted by the end of May each year.

Project studentships (normally UK and EU only)

Many of our research grants will have as a component a studentship dedicated to that particular research project. These normally fully fund UK/EU students only over the three years of their study.

Postgraduate student awards

A range of awards, scholarships and bursaries are available for those undertaking postgraduate study at the University. See www.liv.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/money/scholarship.htm for more information.
