Psychology PhD Funding Opportunites

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.

Funding notes
