The Department has a number of funding opportunities available for Masters, MRes, and MPhil/Phd degrees. Depending on the degree programme, sources vary from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), and the Overseas Development Agency (ODA). In addition the Graduate School offers a small number of fees-only bursaries. Overseas (non EU) students may apply for UCL Open Scholarships, as well as to the Overseas Research Scheme(ORS) for the PhD degree.
