University Funded Studentships

The university is able to fund a number of postgraduate places. These are awarded by the schools/departments or institutions themselves and can take a variety of forms from tuition fee only awards to full funding for the term of the research.


University funded studentships are decided at departmental level and have relevant discipline related eligibility criteria.

Value of funding

Full studentships will cover the cost of tuition fees and also provide a maintenance grant to support students during their studies. Some University Funded Studentships can cover fees only or make a contribution to fees or maintenance

Applying for a University Funded Studentship

Enquiries and applications must be directed to Schools/Institutes/Departments, in the first instance. Funding opportunities are advertised on our HR Vacancies webpage, on our funding tool and School/Institute/Department websites.
