The funding process

Securing funding to support graduate study is a separate (though related) procedure to the academic application. There are a number of funding opportunities available, but all are extremely competitive. It is not unusual for applicants who are made a conditional offer of a place to find themselves without the necessary funds to actually commence their study.

Please do be sure to read the following information most carefully.

Funding offered by the University

Graduate Funding Competition

Cambridge Trust

Gates Cambridge

UK Research Councils

In order to be considered for University funding, applicants must:

  • apply by the funding deadlines
  • tick the box on the application form relating to the funding for which they would like to be considered
  • submit a curriculum vitae
  • submit a research proposal
  • submit two academic references
  • submit a personal reference (Gates Scholarship applicants only)

For more information about University funding, applicants should consult the funding pages of the Graduate Admissions website.
