What you need to know – applying for a PhD (Funding)

calendarThe Institute for Academic Development recently hosted a discussion session on ‘What you need to know – applying for a PhD @ Edinburgh’. The  session provided an opportunity for taught postgraduate students to ask questions about the PhD application process; gain an insight into possible funding opportunities; and how to identify a potential PhD supervisor.   This blog post focuses on funding and highlights some sources (and deadlines) for funding.

Please note that deadlines range from December 2013 until early February 2014. There will also be other funding opportunities which are not listed here and can be searched via the funding database (in the general links, below).
