Postgraduate research study is a major investment in your future, but there is support available to help ease the financial pressure.
The University and external funding bodies, such as Research Councils, offer a range of scholarships to UK, EU and international students that cover full or partial course fees, and/ or maintenance payments. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic merit and are very competitive, so it is important you make enquiries and apply to all relevant sources as early as possible.
University of Leeds
The University's postgraduate scholarships website gives you access to a searchable database of all University postgraduate research funding opportunities at Leeds. You can search according to your nationality, subject and by area of study.
Research Council funding
Every year the University of Leeds receives over £7m from the Research Councils to fund new postgraduate scholarships (both Masters and research). Candidates should check the relevant Research Council website for further information.
Trusts, charities and foundations
There are many trusts, charities and foundations that award partial funding for postgraduate study. There are huge numbers of applications for these sums of money, so you’ll need a strong case to make a successful application.
