External Training Courses Fund

The External Training Courses Fund aims to provide research students with additional opportunities to undertake training, essential to their research, not available within UCL.

Please note that no more awards can be made for external training courses in this financial year (1 August to 31 July) to students in All Faculties.

Graduate students not registered for research degrees are not eligible to apply to this Fund.

Applications for funding are considered on an ad hoc basis (funds permitting).

  • There are no deadlines for applications. However, to receive an outcome before the start of the training course, please submit your application well in advance (i.e. at least one month beforehand).

All queries should be directed to the Graduate School on ext. 37840 or email gradschool@ucl.ac.uk
