Funding for postgraduate research programmes

There are many ways of funding postgraduate research programmes, from scholarships and studentships, to postgraduate loans and research council funding.

My advice to prospective postgraduates is to do as much research into funding as possible. Take a chance when considering and applying for funding. Even if you think you might not quite meet the criteria, you might be pleasantly surprised.
