Fee Scholarship Scheme
The Fee Scholarship Scheme has now ended. Formerly the scheme provided financial support to enable the international fee element of postgraduate research funding to be met from university funds in certain circumstances. Specifically, this was where external funding had been secured by the School to cover the home fees and stipend for a research student, but the School was unable to recruit a home student.
