How to fund your PhD?
Charity Awards (Home and Overseas)
The Alternative Guide to Grad Funding is the most popular postgraduate funding resource in the UK. It focuses on a major alternative but underutilised source of postgraduate funding: charities and trusts. UCA subscribes to this resource and you will need your applicant number and the University pin number to access the resource.
If you’re from the UK or the EU, you may be eligible to take out a PhD loan from the UK government. For more information about this loan see: www.gov.uk/doctoral-loan
UCA fee bursary awards (Home/EU only)

The criteria for award is strictly on the quality of the applications received.
