Postgraduate Research Support Scheme (PRSS)

The PRSS is to provide 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.

When should I apply?

At least one application round will be held every year by individual Schools or Departments (in some cases Faculties). Please check the list of PRSS administering units at the end of the Information for Students document (a link to the document appears below) and contact the appropriate office for information on when applications open and close.
