Conference and Research Funding for PGR Students from the Faculty

Postgraduate research students who require financial support for either a conference they wish to attend or for a research trip are eligible to apply for funding from the Conference/Research Fund. Students can apply for funding to help cover such costs as transport, accommodation and registration fees.  

Given the volume of applications, a maximum of £250 per application is specified.
You are permitted to make up to 2 applications to the fund per academic year, (pro rata for part-time students so 1 application and priority consideration may be given to students applying for funding for the first time over students that have received support previously).

Please note: The academic year relates to the budget year which is 1 August to 31 July each year.  

Applications should be submitted well in advance of the conference or research trip to which they are related.

All applications handed in throughout each month will be assessed by the Faculty team on or around the 22nd of the month and a decision will be made by no later than the end of that month and communicated to the applicant, usually via email.

To apply for support from this fund an application form needs to be completed and submitted to Louise Basey via email at .
All applications must be approved, signed and supported by your supervisor or personal tutor.
