National Minimum Doctoral Stipend for 2016/17 is £14,296
Research Councils UK Indicative Fee Level for 2016/17 is £4,121
The minimum stipend will increase in line with the GDP deflator and this remains the start-point for determining minimum stipend levels and this gives the national minimum doctoral stipend for 2016/17 as £14,296.
The indicative fee level for 2016/17 will increase in line with the GDP deflator and this gives £4,121. For planning purposes, research organisations should note that whilst the GDP deflator remains the basis for determining indicative fee levels, it will remain under review.
