Applying for funding:

Whatever funding you're applying for, we recommend getting in touch with the member of staff you are hoping to work with before you begin. They will be able to discuss your research proposal with you and offer advice on your application.

Before applying for funding, you will first need to apply to the PhD programme. You will then need to follow the application process for your chosen form of funding. Funding application processes may vary so please carefully check the information for each source of funding (below). You do not need to have received an offer before you submit your funding application.  

If you are planning on applying for funding you will need to submit your application in advance of the funding deadline.  We need to receive your course application, funding application(s) and full supporting documents by Tuesday 2 February 2016. You should make sure your referees are aware of the time-frame and that the reference will form part of your funding application.
