Students with a Veterinary Degree
In order to attract students with a veterinary degree qualification, BBSRC offers a higher stipend rate to these students.
As a BBSRC requirement any veterinary graduate funded through a BBRSC TG is entitled to the higher rate stipend applicable at the time. For 2017-2018, the stipend rate for students with a recognised veterinary degree qualification is £22,456.
Note to Training Grant Holders: BBSRC expects these costs to be met from within the overall cash limit of the TG in most circumstances. However, BBSRC recognises that such flexibility does not always exist, and where this is the case BBSRC is prepared to consider extra funding. In order to request extra funding the RO must demonstrate that it lacks the flexibility within its TG 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.
