Your research degree will be the most important work of your life so far – and also the most challenging.

At Portsmouth, we believe research should solve problems that matter and change the world for the better. We can’t make that easy – but we can lessen the stress of paying your way.

If your passions align with ours, we may be able to offer you a scholarship. It will help you focus on the hard yards of your research, by taking some pressure off the cost of living.
