Searching for Research Postgraduate Programmes
Funding of our Research Programmes
There are two types of studentship awarded to qualified full-time students: University Grant (UG) Studentships and Research Grant (RG) Studentships.
UG studentships are awarded to full-time students normally for a period of 24 months for students on MPhil programmes or 36 months for those on PhD programmes. These awards are subject to the Terms and Conditions of University Grant (UG) Studentship.
RG studentships are awarded to full-time students who are recommended by their supervisors on the basis that they could contribute to various research projects with open-bid funding. These awards are subject to the Terms and Conditions of Research Grant (RG) Studentship.
Self-financed (including part-time) students are not entitled to studentships or research student expenses.
