Covid-19 Academic Mitigations for PGR Students

Information is provided below on the ongoing support available for Doctoral and MPhil students impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The University, through the Doctoral College, has provided support for Doctoral and MPhil students where their research activity was impacted by the onset of Covid-19 pandemic from March 2020.  This support has been in the form of academic mitigations, fee-free extensions, as well as funding support through the Covid-19 Impact Fund.  A significant number of students have benefited from fee free extensions to complete their primary research and/or the writing up of their thesis and we have supported over 600 students through the Covid-19 Impact fund with funding ranging from 4 to 26 weeks.
