There are a number of studentships and scholarships available to support research leading to a PhD. Your nationality will determine which source of funding you are eligible for. Please select the appropriate tab below for information relevant to you.
Several sources of funding are available to UK applicants who hold the equivalent of a 1st class or upper 2nd class honours degree from a UK university and whom specific academics wish to take into their laboratory. To be considered for one of these studentships please state on your application form that you are seeking financial support.
Applicants from the European Union (EU) countries outside the UK may or may not be eligible for fully-funded Research Councils studentships. In some cases, studentships cover both tuition fees and living expenses, whereas in others the studentship covers tuition fees but not living expenses. Applicants not eligible for full studentships should try to seek alternative funding to cover their living costs.
