老师是个中国人，跟我研究方向一致，他也表示对我的工作很感兴趣，但是帝国理工cee department要bench fee 一年9000英镑。。。有了解的吗？CSC能cover多少呢？
Thanks for your email and interest to join my research group. You have done some interesting work, and I think you'll fit in well here.
One potential issue is with your relatively junior research status (year 1 PhD). Currently our department is experiencing severe shortage of office spaces, and we only take visiting PhD students who will likely make a significant research contribution; that said, we would also require a full bench fee, which is 9000 GBP/year.
I understand the above must make us less attractive in the eyes of those seeking visiting positions overseas. If you would like to proceed anyway, I'll happy to support your application for CSC scholarship.
