Postgraduate Funding for University Students through Grants from Charity | GradFunding



We facilitate three-hour training workshops titled 'Postgraduate Funding: considering the Alternatives', for groups of up to 30, at universities. We've held these at eighteen different universities so far - often at Graduate Schools or as part of researcher development programmes. Usually the audience are on-course PhD students, but we can also do workshops for prospective students, and even final-year undergraduate students considering postgraduate study.

Workshops consist of a mixture of PowerPoint presentations, discussion sessions, and activities. Each participant will also be given a CD copy of the Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding as standard. Our workshops are always extremely popular!

We also can be engaged for lectures, presentations, talks, and any other event where you feel we would be useful.


Short Talks (e.g. for Open Days, Roadshows)

We also give short talks for open days, roadshows, or standalone lectures. These can be any length you would like, but for Open Day talks etc., a popular length is 20 minutes (plus 10 minutes of Q&A). We are also happy to give you permission to record open day talks and share them on your website or via social media. An example of a recent Open Day talk we did at University of Birmingham can be seen below. For lectures, an hour is often a popular length.
