Scholarships for under-represented groups

Fully funded postgraduate research scholarships for under-represented groups.

The University is committed to addressing barriers to higher education for under-represented groups. We are delighted to offer studentships for Black, Asian and minority ethnic students with a UK fee status studying at PhD level, either part-time or full-time.  

Further information on the awards available for 2023-24 entry will be available in October 2022. Please keep an eye on this page for further details. 

The scholarships are part of our wider commitment to addressing under-representation in postgraduate research (PDF), with opportunities including research internships for prospective PhD candidates and an on-course engagement programme with mentoring.
