Other Sources of Funding

Many academic staff will have research funding for a specific project that can be used to pay postgraduate students. (Funding agencies include HEA, EI, EPA, SFI). Generally this support is at the IRCSET level and may include fees. You should ask individual supervisors if they have such funding, and usually they will advertise the fact.

There may be some possibilities for supplementing income by additional laboratory demonstrating, invigilating at exams, giving grinds, etc. However, often these activities are not well paid and you need to be very careful that the involvement does not significantly increase the time it takes you to complete your degree.  It is possible to be self-financing although this would be unusual within the School of Physics.
