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.
