Physics vacation bursaries

Each year we expect to offer a number of vacation bursaries to Physics undergraduate students. These allow you to spend typically 10 weeks, during the summer vacation, working with a Physics research group. This is a unique funding opportunity to further develop your research skills, become involved with a project at the frontiers of human knowledge, and gain experience of postgraduate research. Priority is given to students who are completing the penultimate year of their studies.

National Health Service bursaries

All medical imaging students who fulfil residency requirements will have their tuition fees paid by the NHS and are eligible to apply for a means-tested NHS bursary. For more information, contact the NHS Student Bursary Unit:
