Funding Opportunities for our Postgraduate Degrees
There are a range of opportunities for financial support for your postgraduate studies. For entry in September 2013, students secured a total of thirteen scholarships through the department. It is usually not possible to secure funding once you have begun your studies, so it is important to secure funding before starting your course.
