Postgraduate research scholarships and funding

There are numerous funding opportunities available for candidates wishing to pursue postgraduate research at one of our Schools.

We are part of two major doctoral training consortia in arts, humanities, and social sciences funded by UK research councils:

  • AHRC North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership (NWC DTP);
  • ESRC North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP).

We provide more than 150 studentships annually, including through the University's flagship President's Doctoral Scholarship Award scheme.

These cover full tuition fees and an annual maintenance grant which you'll receive tax-free.
