Covid-19 funded extensions


 

College-funded postgraduate researchers

The phase 1 and 2 Covid-19 funding extension schemes for College-funded students are now closed.  If you would like to find out more about the current non-funded Covid extension scheme, please click here.

 

UKRI-funded postgraduate researchers

At the end of March 2021, the UKRI announced a third round of funding extensions, run and managed by the DTPs and CDTs.  Please contact your DTP / CDT directly for information how this scheme is being implemented.  

 

Externally-funded postgraduate researchers

If you are wholly funded by an external organisation:

  • Work with your supervisor and liaise with the company/organisation to request a funding extension.
  • If the company/organisation agrees to a funding extension, please inform the Doctoral School so that your student funding record can be up-dated.
  • Please note that you should request full fees from the company/organisation, rather than writing-up fees, for the extension to your current programme of study. 
  • You should also check with the company/organisation that they agree to a commensurate extension to your submission date too.  Please inform the Doctoral School if this the case.

 

 Government-funded postgraduate researchers

  • Work with your supervisor and liaise with your government to request a funding extension.
  • If your government agrees to a funding extension, please inform the Doctoral School so that your student funding record can be up-dated.
  • Please note that you should request full fees from your government, rather than writing-up fees, for the extension to your current programme of study. 
  • You should also check with your government that they agree to a commensurate extension to your submission date too.  Please inform the Doctoral School if this the case.
