Fees and funding

Undergraduate funding

As well as student loans to cover fees and maintenance, UK/EU students may also be entitled to a University bursary or scholarship.

Taught master's funding

As well as the Postgraduate Loan Scheme offered by the UK government to eligible UK/EU students, we offer a range of awards for both Home/EU and International students at master's level.

Applicants to HCRI who apply for School master's level funding will automatically be considered for HCRI bursaries.

Postgraduate research funding

While you can apply for a PhD place at any time, if you wish to apply for funding for the upcoming academic year, you must have submitted your PhD and funding applications by early February. See the funding pages for annual deadlines:

Research field trips funding

For current students, we also have bursaries available to cover some of the costs of our undergraduate and postgraduate research field trips up to £500 per student. These trips are to locations such as Uganda, Northern Ireland and India.
