Dealing with changes to studentships
It is the responsibility of the research organisation to make sure student details are:
- entered in the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system studentship details section of the relevant training grant record
- kept up to date during the studentship period
Contact the Je-S helpdesk if you need help with using the system.
This responsibility includes:
- processing any changes (such as full-time to part-time) or suspensions to funded studentships
- approving any applications for study and conference visits
Read the training grant terms and conditions when considering suspensions and other changes to studentships.
If you’re a student
If you’re a student and you’re changing your studentship project description or personal data such as your surname or address, you must arrange for your research organisation to update your details in the Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) system.
Students with questions about their studentship funding should contact the relevant training grant consortium or research organisation, not AHRC.
For university staff
University staff with queries about training grant payments from AHRC should first contact the relevant university finance department.
If they cannot help, contact UKRI’s post-award operations team.
For grant-holding organisations and consortia
Grant-holding organisations and consortia that have queries that the terms and conditions don’t address should email AHRC.
