Financial Support

Industrial sponsorship

Sponsorship for students who wish to gain higher degrees by research is sometimes available from some of these bodies.

Postgraduate Student Awards

For all postgraduate research students there are a number of scholarship schemes available through the University. Most scholarships are awarded on the basis of merit rather than hardship and competition is fierce.
