Other funding for current students

This page contains information about funding opportunities offered by the College Research Centres and external organisations that we know have supported our students in the past.

In addition to the specific opportunities listed below, you are also encouraged to access the Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding, which the University has subscribed to and which all students can access free of charge. This is an external resource providing advice to graduates on applying for funding from sources such as charities and trusts. Features include a searchable database of funding opportunities, together with help on writing personal statements and a grants manager to help students keep track of their funding applications.
