Four studentships are available for 3 years at University of Leeds - UK, and include payment of tuition fees and a postgraduate stipend of approximately £13,000 per annum.

1. Absorption and metabolism of polyphenols from Rooibos tea

The students will be able to spend some time at the Nestlé Research Center, Lausanne, Switzerland, to get some experience of the Food Industry, and possibly also at a collaborating University in The Netherlands, The University of Wageningen.

The award is available to UK, EU and International candidates, but International candidates (outside EU) would be required to pay the difference between UK/EU tuition fees and International tuition fees.

It is a requirement that overseas students have achieved a minimum level of English language proficiency (an IELTS score of 6.0, a paper-based TOEFL score of 550, or a computer-based TOEFL score of 220).
