Department for the Economy (DfE) provides studentships that both pays PhD researchers' full tuition fees and provides an annual stipend of not less than £18,622.

For those who are successful in being awarded a DfE studentship the DfE Terms and Conditions will form part of your contract with the University and as such PhD researchers should be familiar with the document.

Information on DfE CAST awards is also available online, further information on this can be obtained by emailing our Doctoral College team.

For international PhD researchers in receipt of a DfE International award, please see terms and conditions.
