Fees and Funding

Postgraduate research students are responsible for arranging their own funding to cover fees and living expenses. There are many different ways you might be able to fund your research studies including:

  • research councils
  • local authorities
  • career development loans
  • trusts and charities
  • school or faculty studentships and bursaries

The University postgraduate funding website is an excellent place to start looking for help with the cost of your postgraduate studies, providing information on scholarships and awards you may be eligible for. The key is to apply early for your course, giving yourself the maximum amount of time to track down funding.

School of Law PhD scholarships

The School of Law offers funding for PhD candidates. The amount of funding available for the school to award varies year upon year and the exact value of each individual award will be decided by the school. Some students may receive a scholarship which covers the full tuition fee; others may receive a maintenance grant to support living costs; alternatively a full scholarship including both fees and stipend may be awarded.

Scholarship awards are made on the basis of academic merit and the strength of the proposed doctoral research. These scholarships are available in all areas of law in which the school is able to offer supervision.

The deadline for 2018 has now passed. Details for 2019 entry will be posted when available.
