Research funding

From application to acquittal, Research Funding Team provides the full range of advice, reviewing, reporting and management for research grants, tenders and fellowships.

Policy and Procedures

Last updated 26/02/2018

We have significantly simplified the processes for external research grants and funding. The purpose of these changes is to reduce the administrative burden for researchers at the application (pre-award) and success (post-award) stages.

Note that there will be a transition phase from 26 Feb – 31 March 2018, during which time forms and processes may be adjusted due to operational or University requirements. Researchers should download the forms from this page when required.

To view the Research Funding Policy and Procedures, please follow the links below.  These documents will be updated in 2018 to better align with the new forms and processes:
