Research Training & Support Grant (RTSG)

All students who do not have a RTSG within their funding award can claim up to a maximum of £3,000 from the department for this purpose over the lifetime of their studies. Students who have a RTSG within their award that does not total £3,000 over the lifetime of their studies can apply for the difference if required. These funds must be applied for via the Graduate Studies Officer using the form Application form_Conference and Research Funds for PGRs. This policy will be implemented from the start of Michaelmas Term 2021.
