EPSRC Mathematical Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) 2021/22 Studentship Scheme

The EPSRC Mathematical Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) 2021/22 Studentship Scheme is to support doctoral training across any area of mathematical sciences research, and there is broad latitude to use the funding to support doctoral training in areas across the breadth of mathematical sciences research.  Whilst primary supervision is expected to be in the Departments of Mathematics and Statistics, Computer and Information Sciences, and Management Science, cross-Departmental/School/Faculty supervision of projects is strongly encouraged.

UKRI Studentship Eligibility

The eligibility criteria for UKRI funding has changed for studentships commencing in the 2021/22 academic year. Now, all home and international students are eligible to apply for UKRI funding which will cover the full stipend and tuition fees at the home rate (not the international rate). Under the new criteria, UKRI have stipulated a maximum percentage of international students that can be recruited each year against individual training grants. This will be managed at the institutional level for all EPSRC DTP and ICASE grants. For EPSRC CDT grants, this will be managed by the individual CDT administrative/management team. For ESRC and AHRC studentships the final funding decision will be made by the respective grant holder.

To be classed as a home student, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a UK national (meeting residency requirements), or
  • Have settled status, or
  • Have pre-settled status (meeting residency requirements), or
  • Have indefinite leave to remain or enter.

The residency requirements are based on the Education (Fees and Awards) (England) Regulations 2007 and subsequent amendments. Normally to be eligible for a full award a student must have no restrictions on how long they can stay in the UK and have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the studentship (with some further constraint regarding residence for education).
