Scholarships and funding

The College of Arts and Law is a vibrant community of students and academics, dedicated to ensuring that excellence is rewarded, and that fears about finance do not constrain current or prospective students. For this reason, in addition to University funding schemes, we offer our own College-specific funding initiatives.

Funding for prospective students

The following funding schemes will be offered for 2016 entry:

We also offer subject scholarships in areas including:

University awards

College of Arts and Law students may also be eligible for University awards. 

You cannot apply for these awards directly, you must be nominated by a member of staff. If you wish to be considered for these, you will need to contact your programme convenor/potential supervisor in the first instance. 

The College of Arts and Law nomination deadline is Friday 6 May 2016 for the below university awards, which is earlier than the University deadline. Once the College deadline has passed, nominations will be short listed and put forward to the University Funding Office to meet the University deadline. Please bear this in mind when contacting staff to enquire about these awards.

International scholarships

The University also awards a number of scholarships for international students, including scholarships for students from particular countries and regions, such as the Hong Kong Postgraduate Scholarship and the Li Siguang Scholarship for Chinese PhD students.

Other funding opportunities

Other funding opportunities may be available to prospective postgraduate students throughout the year. For details of all funding opportunities that may be available to you, please visit the University's Postgraduate Funding Database
