Postgraduate scholarships and funding

There is a variety of options to assist you with the financial commitment of postgraduate study.

Funding your postgraduate studies

One of the most critical elements when considering postgraduate study is how much it will cost. We understand that studying for a Masters is a large financial and personal investment, so we want to make it as easy as possible for you to access essential funding.

To make the most of the funding opportunities you need to make sure you know what is available, whether you are eligible and how you need to apply.

Many postgraduates are self-financed, however financial support may be available for both taught programmes (normally for one year) and research (normally up to three years) through a range of studentships and sponsorships.

There are a number of ways you can fund your postgraduate studies, some of which are outlined below.

Business School Scholarships

We have six full-time scholarships, each worth £1,000, and six part-time scholarships, each worth £500, awarded as a tuition fee discount, available for the academic year 2017/18. These will be awarded to the most dedicated applicants who make a commitment to being an advocate of their programme, the Faculty and the University.

Sources of UK funding

There is a range of awards for students living in the UK who wish to fund either full-time or part-time postgraduate study that are offered outside of the University.

Paying your tuition fees

We know the option to pay upfront will not suit everyone’s finances. Many of our students opt to join one of the University’s agreed instalment schemes, with three manageable payments spread out over the year. However, if your fees are over £5,000, you will need to make an initial payment before joining an instalment scheme.
