I desperately want to do a PhD in the UK in neuroscience.
I have a possibility to conduct one in Southampton Uni, but I need to cover the difference in the fees (Overseas - UK/EU rates) by myself.
I could not find any opportunities for funding for me being Ukrainian and applying for a PhD in the UK.
The University of Southampton has no scholarships available, and so does Ukrainian government.
Popular international funding organisations (like Commonwealth and Newton Fund) do not have Ukraine in the list of countries they support.

Is here any Ukrainians or other international students in the same conditions who solved this puzzle?

I'm really out of ideas. Thanks for the help.

It's very difficult for non-UK/EU students to get funding for PhDs in the UK unless they are sponsored by their government or industry.
