Postgraduate Study Visits Scheme

The scheme provides grants to enable research students to undertake a study visit to another institution for a minimum of two weeks.

Students will acquire hands on skills relevant to their research training and completion of the doctoral degree.  This scheme is only open to students who are registered for a doctoral degree at a UK university.

Six awards, two in each of the following categories, are available each year:

  • up to £250 for a visit to an institution in the UK
  • up to £400 for a visit to an institution in Europe
  • up to £600 for a visit to an institution elsewhere in the world

How to Apply

The following documentation should be sent to the Society:

  • an application form, available from the Board Administrator
  • a supporting statement by the doctoral student's supervisor
  • a supporting statement from the proposed host institution
  • a copy of the student's current CV

The call for nominations opens in June each year. The closing date for nominations in 2014 is 26 September.
