E4 DTP Funding

Details of the E4 studentship, optional E4 stipend extension schemes (PIP and PDS) and other funding provision (ORVCF and Paid Leaves).


The DTP studentship is fully (or partly) paid by NERC and is therefore regulated by the UKRI Training Grant Terms and Conditions. Further guidance can be found in the UKRI Training Grant Guide. Please refer to the section TGC8 of both documents for matters such as sick leave, maternity/paternity/adoption leave, interruptions and annual leave.
