Many of our students choose to spend a period working away from Cambridge, to conduct research relevant to their PhD. The Faculty has some funds available to help cover the associated fieldwork costs, but demand for these funds is always very high. Students are advised to consider their fieldwork requirements when submitting an application and to discuss these during the interview where possible.
