An STFC studentship is an excellent way to continue training beyond your first degree - if your interest is astronomy, particle physics, nuclear physics, solar and planetary science or particle astrophysics.
It gives you the opportunity to carry out exciting, original research, and potentially become the first to discover something new about the universe. Through working alongside world leading researchers, you will also learn skills and knowledge that will benefit your future career, in academia, the private sector or elsewhere.
STFC awards grants to universities to provide studentships rather than awarding them direct. Studentships are advertised on the university’s website or you can contact a university direct to find out what funding is available.
You can find details of STFC Studentships awards in the funding section of our main website.
