Research Councils UK (RCUK) has announced doctoral stipend levels and indicative fees for 2018.
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 2018/19 as £14,777.
The indicative fee level for 2018/19 will increase in line with the GDP deflator and this gives £4,260. 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.
