PhD Fees and Funding

Real Estate & Planning - PhD Fees and Funding Opportunities


For information on fees, please visit the Graduate School website. Overseas applicants should refer to the non-laboratory based fees listed in the tables (International Band 1 for non UK/EU students).

Henley Business School Scholarships

We offer PhD scholarships covering fees and stipend for 3 years and awarded on the basis of outstanding academic merit.

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.

Further PhD funding

The University allocates over £8 million each year in postgraduate research studentships and bursaries, so there are many opportunities to access funding. And, as an outstanding applicant, you may be eligible for one of around 150 entry awards allocated each year.

Details of the costs of your research programme and the funding available to you can be found on the Graduate School website. This also includes information on loans and other means of supplementing your income while you undertake your doctorate.
