Scholarships and studentships
We are eligible to receive studentships from ESRC ('1+3'. ‘+3’ and CASE/ESRC) and AHRC. We also offer a number of our own postgraduate studentships, available to both home and overseas students.
The School is the lead institution for the NERC-funded CENTA Doctoral Training Centre, which funds between five and seven PhD UK/EU studentships at Birmingham each year.
International students can often gain funding through overseas research scholarships, Commonwealth scholarships or their home government.
For further information contact the School directly or get in touch with the Funding, Graduation & Awards via the online enquiries system.
For EU students applying for the 2020/21 academic year
The UK Government has confirmed that EU students will continue to be eligible for 'home fee status' for entry in September 2020, and will continue to have access to eligible financial support via the Postgraduate Masters or Doctoral loan for the duration of their course.
