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 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.

t is best to apply early for your course, giving yourself the maximum amount of time to look for available funding. 

The  University's postgraduate funding webpage provides information on scholarships and other sources of funding including:

  • Postgraduate loans
  • Professional and career development loans
  • Disabled Students Allowances (DSA)
