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 financial and personal investment, so we want to make it as easy as possible for you to access essential funding.

Many postgraduates are self-financed, so it helps to know about our instalment schemes and what to expect. Many students in the UK choose to take advantage of the government's Postgraduate Loan Scheme, and alumni of the University are eligible for a 10% discount. Find out more below. 

Postgraduate loans for full-time and part-time study

Support is available for residents of the UK who wish to apply to study a postgraduate Masters degree. A postgraduate loan of up to £10,280 may be available to assist and support you with your course fees and living costs.

Alumni Loyalty Discount

If you have already completed an undergraduate degree (not including HND or Foundation degree), PGCE or GDL with us, and meet our requirements for a postgraduate taught programme, you may be able to receive 10% off your tuition fee.

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.
