Postgraduate Student Awards
A range of awards, scholarships and bursaries are available for those undertaking postgraduate study at the University. See our Scholarships pages for more information.
UK-based applicants 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). These normally cover tuition fees and living expenses for UK students and tuition fees only for other EU students. Under the AHRC Block Grant Scheme, we have between one and three AHRC PhD Studentships available each year for outstanding candidates. Please contact the Director of Postgraduate Research for further details.
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 here.
