Postgraduate Scholarships, Fees and Funding

Funding options 

There are three main sources of funding for postgraduate programmes:

  • Self-funding, where the individual covers costs themselves.
  • Funding from external sources, such as scholarships, government research councils, charitable organisations and foundations.
  • Funding from The University of Nottingham Scholarships. Please see the International Office website for more details. 

Generally, you should first apply to the School for a place on a postgraduate programme unless otherwise stated. You can then apply for a scholarship once you have a conditional or unconditional offer.


Course fees vary depending on the course you have chosen to undertake. There may also be other applicable fees depending on your circumstances.


Scholarship opportunities are announced throughout the year. Please continue to check our website for the latest information.
