The period of the Studentship is decided by the Department according to the student’s ability, academic background and experience. The current Studentship carries a stipend of $16,400* per month. Studentship recipients are required to spend up to six hours of training each week within their Department. The training involves assisting teaching and scholarly activities and is relevant to a student’s formal programme of study.
Part-time students are not eligible for Research Studentships.
