To Apply

Funding applications are submitted online following an application through Admissions for your course. Funding applications vary, so it is always best to go through the direct link for the scholarship on the Doctoral College website.

Directors of Graduate Studies in centres and departments are asked to provide written comments on applicants and to select a limited number for consideration by the University. Very strong departmental support is essential for applicants. It is therefore crucial to discuss your application with the Director of Graduate Studies and the Departmental PG Funding officer in advance of applying.

If you have questions about your application, please contact the Doctoral College and request to speak to the Postgraduate Scholarship Officer. Contact or +44 (024) 7657 5533. Please quote your student ID in the subject of your email.
