Postgraduate funding

If you are a UK student then you may be eligible to apply for ESRC or AHRC funding (for MA/PhD or PhD-only). EU and International students must meet certain residency criteria, such as living in the UK for 3 years prior to applying (which can include living in the UK for educational purposes for EU students, but not for non-EU students; check here for details). The funding is highly competitive and the funding application deadline is typically early February for a degree that starts in October of the same year. Therefore, we highly recommend that you contact us by the end of the November before the application deadline if you want us to help you to develop a strong submission. It’s ok if you haven’t submitted a PhD application by then, just get in touch and we can discuss things.

More information about fees and funding can be found at this link, which also includes some opportunities for international students.
