Postgraduate students

MATCH strives to attract outstanding doctoral candidates, support their funding applications, and provide them with world-class training and career development opportunities. We encourage our students’ participation to conferences, fieldwork, and training and research trips, and support their activities through our dedicated small grants.

We have a proven track record of helping talented doctoral candidates secure competitive scholarships offered by Northern Bridge, the AHRC, and the National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF). We will consider queries for postgraduate research degrees by excellent students from all over the world, and will happily support the best UK and EU candidates in their applications to Northern Bridge and other funding schemes to which they are eligible.
