Research bursaries

Some of our academic schools offer bursaries for research students, either on a fees-only basis or with a tax-free maintenance allowance. In general, only home or EU fees are covered, and international (non-EU) students would be required to pay the difference between international (non-EU) and home or EU fees. Please contact the relevant academic school for details.

Scholarship Projects for Undergraduate Researchers (SPUR)

There are opportunities for our undergraduate students to get involved in the University's research activity. The SPUR programme gives students the chance to assist in research projects during the summer vacation. Look out for details through the student news emails.

Further information about external funding can also be found on the following websites:

International (non-EU) applicants often find funding from their own government or employer.

University Alliance Doctoral Training Alliance
