当你开始为你的研究生学位寻找资金时,有几件事需要考虑.

Start early and think outside of the box

如果你有可能想要攻读研究生学位, then you can start planning and saving right from the off. Wages from weekend or summer jobs, siphoning off small chunks of your undergraduate student loan, 你能做的任何其他小的长期储蓄都会有很大的帮助, 特别是如果你把钱放在一个合理的地方,它将增长,你不能屈服于诱惑,把它花在心血来潮. 许多博士生也可以利用业余时间学习的优势来配合你的研究工作. See our degree durations page for more information.

Talk to your supervisor

If you're applying to do a PhD, 尽早和你未来的主管讨论资金问题是值得的. 许多学者可以从多个来源获得资金,这些资金可以转移,为合适的候选人提供定制的学生. 这些类型的机会很少被提升,因为他们不是来自研究委员会的标准学生. 学者们也可能知道只有通过特定的学术网络才能获得资金的其他潜在途径.

Sell yourself in applications

When applying for funding remember that awards are competitive, and sell yourself accordingly; tell the funding body or institution why you deserve this money more than the next applicant and what you plan to do with your postgraduate qualification when they’ve helped you pay for it.

Think small as well as big

Don’t just look for big, eye-catching scholarships; everyone else will be chasing these too, 通常你只能获得一项来自大学或研究委员会的奖学金, which is where most large awards come from. There are hundreds of small, 通常是当地的慈善机构,专门为教育目的提供小额赠款——可能是500英镑, 你可以持有尽可能多的这些你可以申请并成功获得奖励. 获得一些像这样的小奖学金可以很快地从你的学费中节省一大笔.

Be clever with textbooks

本科学生在大学图书馆系统只能借阅15项资料, 但博士生和其他研究生研究人员可以借40英镑, 这意味着你可以避免购买每本教科书和进一步阅读的内容. eBooks can help further still.

卖掉你不再需要的旧课本也能让你赚一大笔钱, 尤其是当它们保存完好且仍是最新版本时.

Live sensibly

A more mature approach to shared living can really help a postgraduate student house save money; planning food shops together and batch cooking so you can freeze meals in advance is much more economical. 带盒饭去学校可能会让你感觉又回到了学校, but will save you money.

Work on campus

大学通常会提供大量灵活的兼职工作,以配合研究生学习, especially if you’re studying part-time. 如果你正在攻读博士学位,你可能会教本科生, or it could be working in a customer service or admin role, for instance as a student ambassador.

Travel sensibly

如果你必须去学校,那么尽量减少你的行程,把校园活动安排在同一天. Or think about getting a bicycle if it’s not too far.

Remember you're still a student

Don’t forget student discount; many retailers offer this, and you’re still eligible as a postgraduate.
