We can only accept people to study for a DPhil if they have evidence of funding for the duration of their study. On the application form you will be asked how you intend to fund your studies. If you are awaiting a decision from a possible funding body, or if such a body requires a letter of acceptance from the University then you can still apply, but any offer will be conditional on funding being secured. Please note that in order to commence your studies in October 2019, your prospective college will require you to confirm your funding arrangements by 31st July 2019


All students who enrol on the DPhil Clinical Neurosciences are entitled to a £2,000 grant

There is currently no additional funding available to support students who need a fourth year and students are encouraged to talk to their supervisors in the first instance.
