UCL academic departments may also administer awards specifically aimed at students in their department. The list below provides information submitted by departments, but we would recommend that you also search your departmental web pages for any further funding opportunities and advice.

Other Departmental Funding

Funds not listed by departments may include;

Departmental Research Studentships

Departmental Research Studentships may be awarded when funds are available. Studentships range from assistance with fees to full awards equivalent to Research Council Studentships, and may be awarded on the basis of academic merit and financial need. You can search for available studentships by using our PhD Opportunities finder.

Impact Awards

Impact awards support collaborative studentship projects with organisations such as charities, companies, government institutions and social enterprises. Further information can be found on their website.

Demonstratorships and Teaching Assistantships

Demonstratorships are awarded by some departments for four years and include a stipend and tuition fees at the UK/EU rate, in return for teaching or demonstrating for up to 400 hours per year. Partial demonstratorships are also made available as and when required by some departments.

Some departments offer teaching assistantship positions. These are open to students who have successfully completed the first year of their MPhil/PhD programme. The duties of teaching assistants vary but will normally include the teaching of undergraduate students, coursework marking and examination grading. Individual departments should be contacted for information on the availability of demonstratorship and teaching assistantship opportunities.
