Together with EPSRC and other national funding sources, the The University of Manchester Department currently provides financial support to some 60 postgraduate students every year (approximately 15 new students per year). EPSRC DTA research studentships are available in all areas for UK and EU students. Students who are normally resident in the EU but not in the UK are eligible for EPSRC PhD studentships, but the awards in such cases currently cover only the course fees, not maintenance stipends.
- Students may enter our graduate programme in Statistics by initially taking our taught M.Sc. course over 1 year. This, subject to satisfactory progress, can lead to admission to the PhD programme.
