Subject specific scholarships and studentships


University Research Scholarships

Applications are assessed based on academic success, qualifications, experience, background and potential impact of the research and a good match with our expertise.

Schools offer a range of Research Scholarships in the form of fee waivers between 25 per cent and 100 per cent.

Funded studentships

We also offer studentships to researchers in certain disciplines. Studentships are similar to scholarships in that they provide tuition fee discounts to postgraduate researchers. The main difference between studentships and scholarships is that the former usually requires you to work for the University in a research or teaching capacity (with some exceptions) or is attached to a specific research project or field of study.
