In 2014, we allocated over £28 million of scholarship funding to postgraduate students, helping outstanding individuals to get to the next level of their career.

For our 50th anniversary in 2015, the amount of money we intend to spend on studentships and bursaries is set to increase even further.

We will allocate over 250 scholarships across all our subjects, for home and international students, through our departments, doctoral training centres, and central university funds.
