We appreciate that many potential PhD students may not have sufficient funds to see their way through a PhD. However, a variety of sources of funding exist for which both UK/EU and International students may be eligible to apply. Supervisors provide assistance and guidance in helping students to complete applications for competitive scholarships.
Applicants should refer to the Graduate School for a comprehensive overview of PG funding opportunities available for UK, EU and international students. These include Research Council Awards, University scholarships (Direct Alumni Scholarships, Family Scholarships and Universitas 21 Alumni Scholarships), and International Scholarships.

The University of Nottingham offers a range of research scholarships for outstanding international and EU students.
Applicants must receive an offer of study before applying for our scholarships. Please note the closing dates of any scholarships you are interested in and make sure you submit your research course application in good time so that you have the opportunity to apply for them.
The International Office also provides information and advice for international and EU students on financing your degree, living costs, external sources of funding and working during your studies.
