Fees and funding

Funding for postgraduate students

Information about course fees is available on the University Postgraduate Course Fees information page.

We are keen to attract the best students whatever their financial circumstances. A range of sources of financial support are therefore available. The University of Reading runs its own scholarship schemes every year: there are two schemes for students from the UK and EU (one in Social Sciences, covering most empirical aspects of the study of politics, the other in Arts and Humanities, covering political philosophy and some aspects of political history). There is also a separate competition for international students. In addition, the University is a member of the ESRC's South East Doctoral Training Centre and of the AHRC's South, West, and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership.

The university is also accepting applications for doctoral scholarships in Climate Justice until March 27, 2015.
