Before applying, you should consider carefully how you will finance your studies for the duration of your programme, including tuition fees, research support fees and living costs.
We are able to take payments in instalments, to spread out the cost of your studies, and it is possible to switch between full-time and part-time modes of study. For more information go to www.wlv.ac.uk/howtopay.
From 2018, the government is making loans available for postgraduate research students of up to £25,000, to cover fees and living expenses. More information can be found at www.gov.uk/doctoral-loan.
The Research Councils UK funds postgraduate study in all subject areas on a discretionary basis.
The University offers a very limited number of research stipends, formerly known as bursaries, to research students. Stipends are designed to support specific projects as determined by the Research Institute rather than individual student-led projects.
Funds are accessible from the relevant Research Institute or Centre - please contact them directly.
As a research student, you could also self-fund or apply for funding from an employer or other organisation. Prospects.ac.uk has detailed information about funding postgraduate study.
