The funding process

Securing funding to support postgraduate 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.

For more information about University funding, applicants should consult the funding webpages and Funding FAQs from Postgraduate Admissions.

Students should also be able to find details of funding through Cambridge Funding Search
