Postgraduate Research Support Scheme
The PRSS is a scheme that provides direct support for currently enrolled postgraduate research students. Under the scheme, funds are allocated to Schools or Departments (in some cases Faculties) based on their higher degree research enrolment figures in the previous year. The funds are not allocated directly to the students but are awarded by Schools or Departments to eligible applicants on a competitive basis according to the University's general guidelines. Information about the Postgraduate Research Support Scheme is available on the Scholarships Office website.

In the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the PRSS application process is managed by the Schools. At least one application round will be held every year. For information on application closing dates and to obtain copies of application forms and guidelines visit the School website.

Scholarships are also sometimes available from Arab universities, for example the University of Kuwait.
