The notional cost from October 2020 has been calculated as:

  • Standard maintenance: £15,285
  • Fees: £4,407
  • Research Training Support Grant: £750
  • Overseas Fieldwork Support: £450
  • Total: £20,892

DTPs and CDTs also receive funding for student and cohort development, paid as a single payment per student on the Doctoral Training Grant.

Where relevant, the Doctoral Training Grant is supplemented to cover London weighting. Each studentship allocated to a DTP and CDT is calculated as if it was a full award, but the research organisation can also allocate part-time studentships as appropriate. Students must receive the full value of an award they are entitled to.
