In recognition of the delays imposed by the pandemic, our default Covid-19 Stipend Extension Policy is:

PhDs to end 1 March-31 Dec 2020up to an additional 6 months stipend.
PhDs to end 2021 –
up to an additional 3 months stipend.
PhDs due to end later than this are expected to manage on normal funding.

Supervisors must write to us requesting extensions to funding and indicating what the new expected end date will be.

We recognise that there might be exceptional circumstances that will need to be accommodated. Please discuss any particular issues relating to the length of extensions and research support required. We will pay any fees that are required by Universities to cover the extensions but will not normally award further research expenses.
