    Hello! I'm a US American and have received offers for PhD study at two UK universities. I am currently waiting to hear about internal funding decisions from each university, but in the meantime, I thought it would be prudent to research how to go about funding a PhD in the UK when you are an international student. I have read that many people try to collect small pockets of funding that then pay for significant portions of their tuition, but how does this work? Would someone be able to sort of explain this to me and walk me through what these applications would look like? How do you find these smaller pockets of funding from charity, especially when you are not within the country and have no idea what organizations would even be good to look at?

    Thank you so much for you help! I appreciate it!

    Hi scalhoun892,

    You should have a chat with the universities that you are looking at, they may be able to point you in the direction of other funding.

    Thanks Rona
