The majority of masters students studying in the UK fund their own studies, usually through a combination of personal savings, family loans or contributions, bank loans and support from a trust or charity. However, there are a few opportunities for funding.

Funding Opportunities – Home, European Union and International Students

It is important that you explore your funding opportunities well in advance – we recommend that you begin researching at least a year before your proposed start date.

The graduate school  funding information page is a good place to start looking for help with the cost of your postgraduate studies. It provides information on scholarships and awards you may be eligible for.

School scholarships
