Postgraduate Admissions

Funding Opportunities

The Institute offers funding from the Wakefield Scholarship Fund (for applicants born or educated in Canada, Australia or New Zealand) and the Manuel López-Rey Studentship Fund (open to all applicants). A number of applicants are also put forward each year for ESRC studentships, which cover the costs of tuition fees and provide contributions towards living expenses and additional study opportunities. Students eligible for 1+3 ESRC doctoral training funding and interested in studying for a PhD at the Institute of Criminology should state this in their MPhil in Criminological Research application. In the ‘Research’ section they should provide a brief summary of the research topic they would like to pursue and list two possible supervisors. Progression to the PhD programme will be dependent on meeting the standard admissions criteria

For further information on ESRC studentships and other possible sources of funding, please see Funding pages on the Institute of Criminology website.
