Postgraduate student awards 

A range of awards, scholarships and bursaries are available for those undertaking postgraduate study at the University. See http://www.liv.ac.uk/student-administration/research/fees-and-funding/ for more information. Applicants to the University are eligible to apply for three-year studentships awarded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) via regional consortia.

These studentships – for which competition is very fierce – normally cover tuition fees and living expenses for UK students and tuition fees only for other EU students. For further details, see the websites for the North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership (AHRC) and the North West Doctoral Training Centre (ESRC), or contact the Director of Postgraduate Research. Application deadlines for both schemes are normally in February each year.

International Students

The University of Liverpool administers and participates in many scholarship schemes for international students. The majority of the scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit rather than hardship and students must normally hold an offer of a place on a course before they can apply. More details of all of these awards are listed on www.liv.ac.uk/study/international/money-and-scholarships/
