The current level of funding for home students funded by UK Research Councils is
- A maintenance stipend of £15,290 per annum.
- In addition the Research Councils pay the College Fees £3,390 per annum.
- Incidental expenses, such as travel and subsistence for meetings, conferences and field work, and the cost of a computer and consumables are usually paid by a training support grant.
We offer a number of other fully-funded PhD project studentships sponsored by College, the European Union and others. Where necessary the Department tops these up to match the Research Council figures above. These project studentships are available to EU students.

If you’re from the UK and applying for postgraduate study, you may be eligible for a Professional and Career Development Loan. These are awarded to those taking a course that will enhance their job skills or career prospects. They are administered by a bank and repayable a month after you have completed your studies.
You don’t have to pay interest over the period you’re studying. More information on Career Development loans is available on the Direct.gov website.
Your local British Council office should be able to provide information on scholarship and loan schemes available in your country, as well as general scholarship schemes that you may be eligible for. Further information is available on their website.
