The overriding aim of the Postgraduate Research Student Board is to assist in creating and maintaining a vibrant research culture amongst the community of PhD and LLM by research students in the law school. Without funding, however, this aim would remain but a hope. Thankfully, there are funds available – partly managed by the Student Board  itself, and numerous external sources. These guidelines are designed to help students become familiar with the funding possibilities and procedures for applying for them.

The PGRSB is committed to distributing all monies over which it has control across the broad spectrum of research areas pursued by students and reading groups at the school.
