Funding a PhD

A PhD is a significant financial investment, but it is one that we believe brings an invaluable personal experience and a wealth of professional opportunities on your graduation.

There are a range of different sources of funding available for PhD students at QMUL. These include QMUL Principal’s Postgraduate Research Studentships, UK Research Council Awards, and Scholarships provided by our international partners, as well as research funding from charities and industry.

Finding funding is an important element of the application process –and we recommend that you begin to explore your funding options as early as possible.

It is important to be aware that different funding bodies and organisations will have different deadlines: the majority of these will fall in the November – February prior to the commencement of your PhD project in September.

Further funded opportunities do come up throughout the year so please keep check these pages regularly for updates.
