Finding funds to study at the Nuffield Centre

If you are planning to study at the Nuffield Centre for International Health and Development, then you might find this information about relevant postgraduate funding and funders helpful when you apply.

Obtaining funds for postgraduate study can be a challenge, so make certain you begin looking for funding sources early in the application process.

Remember you will need to budget for fees, maintenance (accommodation, food, rent etc) and other costs (travel etc). Usually, our students are funded through one or more of these sources:

  • Your employer or state government. Discuss with your manager or human resources office how your course will benefit both your organisation and your personal career development
  • Your own savings or similar
  • Through a scholarship.

Please visit the University scholarships and funding page at the University of Leeds for information on the scholarships offered by the University and alternative funding sources for UK, EU and international students.
