The fees for postgraduate research students are set annually by the University. The amount payable is dependent on your fee status (whether you are a UK/EU student or an International student). Fees apply to all PhD research degrees, however some studentships cover all or some of the cost of fees at the UK/EU rate and potentially some of the cost of fees at the international rate. You are advised to always read the details of any studentship opportunity carefully to ensure you understand what the level of financial support offered is and whether it applies to you.

The Department is pleased to offer financial support for talented prospective research students. The scholarships committee meets quarterly to review formal applications made to the department where candidates are seeking financial support (see how to apply).

Funding is available in the form of studentships and these are awarded on the basis of academic merit. The candidate’s academic record, supporting references and the quality of the outline research proposal (minimum 500 words) are important factors in the committee’s decision on which candidates are awarded scholarships.
