Research Professional

Research Professional is an online database of research funding opportunities from UK and overseas funders across all disciplines.

If you are new to Research Professional, you might want to start with the Quick Start Guide and the User Guide in the ‘Getting started’ section.

All staff can view Research Professional from any computer in the University.

Log-in using your University username and password to get the most out of the system. This allows you to:

  • search for research funding in all disciplines from UK and overseas funders
  • save your funding searches – following which you will receive a weekly e-mail alert containing opportunities relevant to your interests
  • use the system from any computer within the University, at home or when working away
  • access News and Know-How sections to gain up-to-date news and advice from funders
