PREPARE FOR A BALANCING ACT. With the
exception of a number of fellowships, full financial
support to postgraduate students is rare. This means
financing your postgraduate studies is likely to involve
a combination of scholarships or bursaries and parttime employment, or loans. So when planning your
funding, consider as many funding opportunities
and sources of support as possible.
ASK FOR HELP. The PGFO is within easy walking
distance from most faculties and departments on upper
campus. Our staff are there advise you on the diverse
funding opportunities available to postgraduates and
help with submission of applications for funding. Also
speak to researchers and potential supervisors as they
may have access to grantholder bursaries.
