Funding deadlines

Funding deadlines don’t apply to all funding types. For example, there is no application process for University scholarships. However, where they do apply, it’s important to be aware of the different timescales in your funding journey and be proactive to ensure you can handle competing priorities.

Where possible, application deadlines for postgraduate research projects are set far in advance to give you time to secure your funding and for funders to assess multiple applications. As such, you may find you need to submit your funding application up to a year before you are due to start your degree.

Remember, missing deadlines can impact your chances of securing funding or starting your research journey on time. Discussing your funding opportunities with your supervisor and outlining an order of priority can help to prevent this.
