PhD Fees and Funding

Real Estate & Planning - PhD Fees and Funding Opportunities


Please see course fees information for full details of the current fees for MPhil and PhD courses.

General Funding

There is a range of scholarships and bursaries available to our research students. Please see the find funding section on our University website for further information.

Regional PhD Bursaries

These bursaries are available for PhD applicants normally living within 25 miles of the University. The scheme is not open to students who have already started their study at the University of Reading. For further information, please go to the Graduate School website.

Funding from REP and RREF

Each year we offer a number of studentships sponsored by the School of Real Estate & Planning (REP) and our Alumni Association RREF (Reading Real Estate Foundation) covering both fees and living expenses for the first year of study and renewable for a further two years subject to progress. 

If you wish to be considered for a studentship, please indicate it on your application form. Studentships are assigned on a competitive basis after the interview for admission (see application process) is completed and an offer is granted. Since these studentships are highly competitive, we strongly recommend candidate to seek for other sources of funding (see above).

If you become a recipient of one of our PhD studentships, you will contribute to teaching and research activities within the School starting from your second year of study.
