Other expenses

You might be able to receive limited funding from the School to cover research expenses incurred from travelling to archives nationally or attending conferences to meet other postgraduates.

We encourage you to seek external funding wherever possible. But if you have a specific requirement essential to your research project, you can apply for funding from the School.

You should discuss this in advance of your trip with the Degree Programme Director, or your dissertation supervisor, and apply to the Head of School. You’ll need to provide the School with all necessary receipts.
