Postgraduate funding

As a research-intensive university, we recognise the vital role postgraduates play in our research and student community. We also recognise that funding your study can be a major barrier to realising your ambitions.

To attract the most talented students and researchers of the future, we invest heavily in funding for postgraduates and are well-funded by the UK Research Councils through a number of high profile Doctoral Training Partnerships. This means we are able to offer numerous PhD studentships annually. These awards are normally advertised during the Winter and Spring months.

In some instances scholarships may be made available from our colleges for masters study.

In order to aid your search for postgraduate funding opportunities at Exeter, we have developed a web-based funding search facility which enables you to search for all relevant funding opportunities by subject area and level of study.

You may also be interested in exploring the links on our Master students funding page and PhD students funding page, or visiting Postgrad.com's Funding Guide.

Many awards are competitive and merit-based so if you are considering applying for a funding scheme, we recommend investigating options early.
