We regularly receive funding for PhD projects from research councils (ESRC, MRC, BBSRC), charities, the EU, and private companies. Funding normally covers research costs and tuition fees, and provides a maintenance grant for living expenses. Some PhD projects already have specific funding allocated to them (eg from a grant). In other cases, supervisors do not have pre-arranged funding – these students can enter the departmental studentship competition.
