Funding for Interdisciplinary Activities

The University Graduate College has established a scheme to fund interdisciplinary activities organised by postgraduate researchers. The principal aim of the scheme is to encourage doctoral researchers from different disciplines to come together to discuss shared research interests. A secondary aim of the scheme is to develop students’ transferable skills by giving them an opportunity to work collaboratively to organise events.
