Funding your PhD

Some of the projects available in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology 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.
