Scholarships and Funding

Calculating the means by which you will finance your graduate study is one of the most important steps when planning your graduate or postgraduate study. It's crucial that you determine how much studying will cost you, taking into account compulsory tuition fees, books, other study-related expenditure, and your daily living costs like rent and food, and that you ascertain how you will meet these expenses.

If you are not financing your study personally, you may qualify for a student loan, living costs, or student allowance from Studylink. We strongly recommend that you review the eligibility criteria for any scholarships. ALPSS is also able to provide some funding for graduate research-related expenses and conference attendance.

Funding for Postgraduate Student Research

Students undertaking research as part of their postgraduate study may be eligible to apply for payment or reimbursement of some of the costs of research and conference attendance. Details, including eligibility, what can be claimed and maximum levels of funding are determined by Faculty policy, which is outlined below, in the relevant forms and the Faculty Graduate Handbook.

Assistance is provided for research students enrolled in MPhil/PhD, DMA and directed studies, dissertations and theses (including MUSI522, MUSI528, MUSI514 and MUSI524).
