Research & Travel Funds
To support postgraduate students for attendance at conferences, travel to gather data or to study source material essential for research and help with extra specialist tuition. Computer and software purchases will be considered.
Eligibility: All postgraduates within their nine terms of research. There is no means test. You may apply more than once in any academic year, providing your supervisor will support your applications.
Timing: Decisions on travel and research funding are made case by case. You need to provide clear evidence of costs. You may apply in advance or retrospectively.
Procedure: Download an application form and have your supervisor add their written support, then return the form to the Tutorial Office (via email or mail). You may include all categories of expense, from visa fees though ground travel, airfares, registration fees and costs of accommodation and board. You are also expected to make applications to other sources (if available). The Committee will grant up to £750 per student per academic year (1st October to 30th September). For students continuing their degree past one year, should you not use the fund in one year, it can be rolled over to be used in the second year (two years consecutively max). For example, should you not claim any Travel and Research expenses in your first year, you could claim up to £1500 in your second year. Should you not claim any Travel and Research expenses in your first or second year, a maximum amount of £1500 could be claimed in your third year. Awards are paid on production of receipts.
