Fees and Funding

When a PhD offer is made by PG admissions, it is only on the basis of academic quality and does not include any guarantee of funding. Funding is dealt separately and usually through the department and/or the project supervisor. Alternatively, you may be able to obtain a scholarship or research council/industrial funding to support your studies.

We are very well supported by both Research Council and Industrial funding. We offer challenging projects across all aspects of modern Chemistry. You can find out more about funding mechanisms at Warwick as well as detailed information on funding opportunities and fee levels.


Exceptional international candidates for PhD study can apply for competitive scholarships. Previous students have been awarded a range of scholarships including:-

> Chancellor's International Scholarships

> China Scholarship Council / University of Warwick scholarships

> Monash Warwick Alliance Joint PhD Scholarships

Successful applicants normally have the equivalent of a UK First Class Degree and other indications of excellent performance, such as a publications record or the award of prizes or scholarships.
