Supervisors will be aware of the research costs in their own areas.  With the exception of the Wellcome Trust, none of the agencies produces enough funding to pay the bench costs of a project requiring substantial resources for a student.  You must ensure that you have sufficient funds before committing yourself to take on a new student. Nonetheless by expanding graduate student numbers in the Department, we can also expand the Department’s research strength, prestige, critical mass and eventually staff numbers.  To this end, the Department strongly encourages potential supervisors to take on students.  The Graduate Office will provide what help we can with obtaining sources of funding and with applications for studentships.
