There are a number of funding opportunities available to research students that can help with the cost of a research degree course:
The Government has introduced a postgraduate Master's loan of up to £11,222. This loan is intended as a contribution to the cost of an eligible* postgraduate Master's qualification. For more information visit the postgraduate loans webpage.
* Ineligible courses include but are not limited to teacher training/NHS/Master of Architecture (Part2).
As a result of major expansion in University research activity a number of research scholarships are now available. For a complete list of research scholarships and for more information please visit our 'research scholarships' webpage.
Additional programme costs (sometimes known as bench fees) may be charged for research degrees, in which there are exceptional costs directly related to the research project. For some subject areas, such as Science and Engineering, these costs could range from £3,000 - £16,000 per year, dependent upon the research project.
