The Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding
St George's subscribes to this popular funding resource for postgraduate students. The Alternative Guide is compiled by two former PhD students. It offers details of hundreds of alternative funding bodies, comprehensive insider advice and guidance, and invaluable tools to streamline and demystify the application process. The guide offers an integrated approach, taking a student through each stage of the funding workflow: from identifying, to finding, to approaching, to crafting winning applications.
To request a PDF copy of this guide, please email student finance quoting your seven digit St George's student number.
