Further UKRI update and guidance on the COVID-19 Phase 2 Doctoral Extension Funding Policy.
UKRI update on student support (January 2021).
On 19 March, UKRI has issued information relating to the impact of COVID-19 on UKRI-supported research (including studentships/training grants): see here for details.
EASTBIO will keep updating its advice for final-year, current and starting EASTBIO students in accordance with the above. As we are preparing to welcome our new student cohort and launch our Training Programme, we are monitoring the situation in discussion with our funding body and our partner institutions. We sought feedback from our students and supervisors and we are processing the input and best ways to support our partnership.
In the meantime, do not hesitate to contact the team (local EASTBIO contacts can be found here), at any time, for advice, to share your concerns or suggest additional way that EASTBIO can support you.
