Postgraduate Support

The School is committed to its postgraduate community and this is reflected in the generous support available to its postgraduate students. In addition to free printing, computing facilities, and Interlibrary Loans, the School provides a series of competitive support funds every semester:

  • Postgraduate Conference Fund: this fund aims to support students wishing to organize a conference within the School.
  • Writing-up fund: up to £2000 per student to assist postgraduates in the final stages of their PhD in circumstances of financial hardship.
  • Postgraduate Research Support Fund: to support research trips, archive visits, and conference attendance outside Newcastle.
  • Postdoctoral Research Support Fund: To support the professional development of our postdoctoral students as early career researchers. Awards of up to £250 support research activities such as library visits and research trips, or establishing regional links with potential partners in the North East.
