Students with a veterinary degree

In order to attract students with a veterinary degree qualification, we offer a higher stipend rate to these students.

As a BBSRC requirement any veterinary graduate funded through a BBSRC training grant is entitled to the higher rate stipend applicable at the time. For 2019-2020, the stipend rate for students with a recognised veterinary degree qualification is £23,164.

Note to training grant holders: We expect these costs to be met from within the overall cash limit of the training grant in most circumstances. However, we recognise that such flexibility does not always exist, and where this is the case we are prepared to consider extra funding. In order to request extra funding the research organisation must demonstrate that it lacks the flexibility within its training grant to meet these costs and that it has no other contingency funding or concurrent TGs on which it could draw. Please contact us for the relevant form, which needs to be attached to the final expenditure statement.
