Funding

Funding your PhD

Some of the projects available in Biomedical Science come with funding to cover your tuition fees and living expenses – for example, a project may be funded by a research council or Centre for Doctoral Training.

If you are not eligible for a funded project, or you are applying for a project that does not come with funding, you may be able to find funding for tuition fees and living expenses from one of the sources below. It is also a good idea to contact the supervisor of any project you are interested in applying for, as they may be able to advise you on other sources of funding. We also accept applications from students who are able to fund themselves.

Departmental scholarships

Each year, we have a limited number of departmental scholarships available to students who are applying for a PhD project that does not come with funding from another source. These scholarships cover your tuition fees and living expenses and are available to students from the UK and the European Union. Occasionally, we can also award scholarships to students from outside the European Union.

To apply for one of these scholarships, state that you would like to be considered for a departmental scholarship when you complete the University of Sheffield's postgraduate online application form. Scholarships are awarded based on the quality of applications.

Scholarships from the University of Sheffield

Scholarships from the University of Sheffield and external sources are available for new PhD students to help cover tuition fees and living expenses.

The University of Sheffield has lots of information and advice about how to fund your PhD on its webpages for postgraduate students. You can find information about tuition fees, check your fee status and use the University of Sheffield's student funding calculator tool.
