Additional costs may be incurred in relation to PhD associated fieldwork and/or research trips. These will be bespoke to the individual student and project. Applicants should discuss any additional costs with their potential supervisor prior to application. Once students are in the Department, there are limited departmental funds that students can apply for. However, this is likely to be insufficient to cover all costs, so students may have to find additional funding elsewhere, e.g. University/College funding.

Overseas applicants will need to be aware that different conditions apply depending on the topic of the research project. Applicants for research in geography should select the following course: PhD (probationary) in Geography in the Department of Geography. The department will then decide into which category – Physical/Natural Science or Social Sciences and Humanities – your application falls. This will affect the level of fee you pay if you are an overseas applicant.
