------- Available studentships -------

1. University/faculty scholarships
These awards cover fees and provide a generous bursary. They're open to UK, EU and international applicants. There are only a few available so they are *highly* competitive.  Closing date for applications is mid January. 
Details can be found here, 
And there is general university research scholarship info here,

2. Departmental-level scholarships 
We will fund 2 or 3 students with an Euro Stipends offering fees and 9k maintenance to UK/EU student; we can also award fee reduction scholarships for strong international students on a needs basis -- worth about 6.5k off the fee
These awards have quite complicated rules for eligibility, see here,    http://www.shef.ac.uk/postgraduate/research/scholarships/epsrc.html
