In general, it is offer-holders’ own responsibility to seek out funding to support your studies. Consequently, the department is not able to seek out funding from external sources on offer holders’ behalf. However, if you do find a funding opportunity that you would like to apply for, if you have already been offered a place to study on one of our programmes, your prospective supervisors will generally be willing to consider supporting your application. If you would like to ask for support in making an application, please contact your prospective supervisors directly.

NB: In general, the department will only support applications to third-party funding bodies if applicants have already been offered a place to study on one of the department’s MPhil/PhD programmes. Accordingly, if you are planning to apply to a third party-funding body, please first apply to the department. As the department’s admissions processes will usually take no less than one month from the point at which you submit your application to the School, and can take six weeks or longer during periods of peak business, please make sure that you apply for a place to study with us in plenty of time to accommodate any external funding body deadlines.
