Funding for postgraduate research

We have an excellent track record of securing funded studentships for our research programmes through the UK Research Councils and industry sponsorship.

Each year we welcome more than 30 postgraduate researchers onto our research programmes and projects and support them to secure funding.

There are several funding streams that you can take advantage of when you come to study with us, including bursaries, Research Council grants and scholarships. More details of each can be found below.

We have excellent connections within industry and have developed partnerships with leading companies around the world. Through these partnerships we can help you to secure industrial funding for your postgraduate research training.
