Fees and Funding
Fees are payable each year of registration and your fee status will be assessed by the Vet School upon receipt of an application for postgraduate study. For those students classed for fees purposes as overseas, the supervisor will determine the fee band payable based on the type of research project being undertaken.
Fee levels are available here. Successful applicants will require funding to cover both fees and living expenses. Fees for international applicants vary dependant on the nature of the project and level of technical specialism required to support the project. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require advice on the level of fees which apply to your prospective project.
A single student living in Nottingham will need a minimum of £700 per month (£8,400 per year) to cover basic living expenses such as accommodation costs, heating, food, daily travel, books, equipment and other necessities. This figure is given as a guide only. The amount you actually spend will depend upon where you live and your personal lifestyle.
The School offers several MRes, MVM, MVS, DVM, DVS and PhD studentships each year which are available to Home / EU students only and further details are available from vacancies section of our website
The University of Nottingham offers many studentships that are awarded on a competitive basis. There are two University of Nottingham websites that you can search for details on funding. Firstly, The Graduate School website which advises on the major sources of funding. Secondly, for international applicants, the International Office website. You are encouraged to visit both of these websites for further information.
University studentships are limited in number and are awarded on a competitive basis to high quality candidates, usually ranked among the top 5% of applicants to the University of Nottingham. Where possible, applicants should also seek scholarships from their native country or from organisations such as The Association of Commonwealth Universities.
The closing dates for most of the University's scholarships are well before the start of the academic year. Applications cannot be considered after the closing dates. It is important to note that applicants for competitive university scholarships must first have applied and obtained an offer to study at Nottingham.
