Annual Increase

Each year, UKRI usually increases their fee and stipend levels in line with inflation, based on the Treasury GDP deflator. Minimum fees recommended by UKRI are adopted as the University of Glasgow Home-level tuition fee for postgraduate researchers on most doctoral programmes. The UKRI minimum stipend level is often used as a guide for other funders.
