A variety of subject-specific funding opportunities across City, University of London are available.
Funding for research degrees is highly competitive, and there are always more applicants than scholarships available.
Self-funding and Postgraduate Doctoral Loans
You may choose to fund your PhD yourself, or via a Postgraduate Doctoral Loan.
Postgraduate Doctoral Loans for new doctoral students are available from both the English and Welsh governments.
For 2021/2022, the maximum available is £27,265 which can be used for course fees and/or living costs, divided equally across each year of your course.
Further information is available on the Student Finance website.
If you are starting a research degree find out what you can get to help pay for your course and living costs.
Accommodation, meals and other personal expenditure are not included in fees. Based on Save the Students’ National Student Money Survey (2019), we recommend a minimum maintenance allowance of at least £10,800 each year for a single student (for the full calendar year) and more for students with families or dependants.
City, University of London Hardship Fund
As part of City's commitment to provide financial assistance for their students in financial hardship, we also have the City, University of London Hardship Fund. The fund provides financial support to all our current students who have met unforeseen financial hardship towards the end of their course.
For many students, this makes all the difference in allowing them to focus on their studies and graduate successfully.
EU Student Tuition Fees
Following Brexit, for the 2021/22 intake all new intake students from the EU will be deemed to be overseas students and will pay the overseas fees.
