Funded postgraduate research opportunities

There is currently no funding available for a position, but please submit an application via the Cardiff University Online Application System and you will be considered for any suitable future opportunities that are funded.

Postgraduate research opportunities will appear here, when funding becomes available, so please re-visit this page periodically. Funding normally covers an annual stipend, as well as postgraduate tuition fees at the home/EU rate.


Obtaining sponsorship / funding your own studies?

If you secure external funding yourself and/or you wish to fund your own postgraduate studies, please let us know by email. If you wish to apply for external funding yourself, please let us know how we can be of assistance. Bench fees will apply for non-home/non-EU students, in addition to tuition fees, and these are dependent on the type of project undertaken. Details of postgraduate research fees can be found here.


Cardiff University encourages prospective students to pursue a 4 year full-time PhD degree, to ensure successful completion.
