FEES & FUNDING GUIDE FOR POSTGRADUATE STUDENTS
The current tuition fees for all postgraduate programmes are available on the School website. Some studentships are
available for certain programmes, please see the following for more information.
http://www.civil.soton.ac.uk/prospectivestudents/scholarships/. If the programme you are interested in does not offer
any studentships or if you are not eligible or successful in being awarded the studentship, then please see below for
alternative funding opportunities. You will need to find funding for both the tuition fees and living expenses for your
time studying at the University.
The following information gives details of some potential funding sources for postgraduate taught and research
students in the School of Civil Engineering and the Environment. It is by no means definitive and is intended as an
introduction to the major funding opportunities available and to other lines of investigation.
Students should note that only a few of the schemes/organisations listed provide sufficient support for an entire
postgraduate programme. Many are trusts or charities which can be a useful source of small grants, intended for
specific purposes, e.g. travel expenses, but few will be able to meet the total amount needed for fees and
maintenance. Some awards will be open to all applicants, but many will insist that applicants meet some very strict
requirements, e.g. with regards to applicant's nationality, the type of project for which funding is being sought, etc. In
most cases (except where stated), students are responsible for conducting research into the awards for which they
may be eligible and must apply directly to the schemes/organisations in which they are interested.
