The Fee Difference Waiver for International Students on UKRI-funded Studentship

This is a Fee Difference Waiver for International Students on a UKRI (United Kingdom Research and Innovation) funded studentship. 


In order to receive the International Doctoral Fee Waiver, you must fulfil the following criteria: 

  • Have been awarded funding by one of the Research Councils under UKRI for a PhD or a Masters and PhD programme at Keele University 

  • Be an international student

If due to any change in circumstances you move your award to a different institution, there is no guarantee that the fee waiver will continue to apply. 

How to apply

To support international students, all international students who are accepted for a UKRI-funded studentship at Keele University will be automatically awarded a fee difference waiver so that they do not have to pay the difference between the home fee in the UKRI award and the international fee currently charged by the university, for the full duration of the UKRI award.
