Postgraduate Accounts
All postgraduate students are given an 8 digit number - used for the financial
administration of their RTSG, bench fees etc.
It is the postgraduate’s responsibility to monitor expenditure.
Details and balances of your account can be obtained from the Finance Office.
Funding Proforma
Before the Finance Office gives you the details of your account we must receive a
completed copy of your funding proforma, authorised by your supervisor and the
postgraduate research office.
This form ensures that you, your supervisor and the Finance Office are aware of
all internal and external funds you have been awarded to support your research
during your PhD.

Demonstrating
If you wish to undertake paid demonstrating work during your time at the
University you are required to complete a registration form. This enables us to
register you on the University Payroll system.
Demonstrating is paid at an hourly or daily rate (dependent on the type of work
undertaken) and on a monthly basis.
Normally the lecturer requesting the demonstrating will have had the
demonstrating hours pre approved at the start of the semester.
