Postgraduate Admissions

 

Most Colleges have funding opportunities listed in the Postgraduate Funding Search. Some Colleges also partner with Research Councils funding. The Research Councils administer these studentships by their usual funding processes. Recipients of these awards will need to transfer to that College (unless they are already a member).

There are three main types of College funding:

1. Open funding

A small number of Colleges do not need you to state their College as a preference in your application. If awarded the funding, you will need to transfer to that College (unless you are already a member). Applicants will need to complete and send a separate funding application to the College.

2. Funding based on College preference

Most Colleges need you to state their College as a preference in your application. Funding application processes vary from College to College. Some may automatically consider your application for funding, whereas others will need you to submit an extra funding application.

3. Post-offer application

Some College funding is only available to those who have already accepted a place at that College. Applicants may be automatically considered for any awards they are eligible for, or the College will invite them to submit an extra funding application.

 

Information in the Postgraduate Funding Search will tell you what the criteria and process for applying are. There is also guidance available on each of the College websites
