Finding funding is a priority for many postgraduates.
The University of Nottingham’s postgraduate funding pages should be your starting point as this information is relevant wherever you study within the UK.
The Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding
This online guide provides alternative sources of funding - especially charities - which can make awards (fees, maintenance, research costs) to any student regardless of subject, or nationality.
It contains a huge database of funding opportunities, comprehensive guidance, and numerous tools to help you prepare a winning grant application.
We have purchased a licence for the guide so it’s free to Nottingham students and staff to use.
