Obtaining sponsorship/funding your own studies

If you secure external funding yourself, wish to fund your own postgraduate studies, or wish to apply for external funding yourself, please let us know.

Bench fees will apply for non-home/non-EU students, in addition to tuition fees. These are dependent on the type of project undertaken.

We encourage prospective students to pursue a 4 year full-time PhD degree, to ensure successful completion.

When will other studentships become available?

Please check back here periodically, as more opportunities arise throughout the year.

You are also encouraged to view our academic staff profiles, and enquire with individual staff members about future opportunities for funding and postgraduate research in their field.
