Fees & Funding


Fees & Funding 


Tuition Fees – Home, European Union and International Students

Tuition fees cover registration, tuition, graduation (not including guest tickets and gown hire) and automatic membership of the University Association which allows you to take advantage of the University facilities and community after graduation.

Please visit our fees tables for a full list of current course fees. You will be sent confirmation of your course fees with your offer letter.

In addition to tuition fees, you will also need to take living expenses into consideration; please visit the general living costs page.

Funding Opportunities – Home, European Union and International Students

It’s 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 postgraduate 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.  

Funded scholarships available in the school

There are also funded scholarships advertised on our school research degree web pages as well as highlighting the research areas the school is involved with.

The University of Nottingham Sports Bursary

If you are a talented athlete, you might be eligible for our Sports Bursary Scheme which provides financial and specialist support to help you maximise your sporting potential. The University provides around 20 bursaries every year worth around £2,000. A full outline of the bursary and how to apply can be found in our information leaflet.

Funding opportunities for Scottish students

The Students Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS) runs the Postgraduate Students’ Allowance Scheme (PSAS), which offers awards for professional and vocational training to Scottish students wanting to study anywhere in the UK.


Research Councils UK

Research Councils UK is a partnership of the seven british research councils and provides funding for tuition and maintenance to some british and European Union students. The councils are the main source of government funding for postgraduate study. Students from the European Union should note that awards from Research Councils UK are restricted to fees only unless there has been residency in previous years. Funding for the Mathematical Sciences is principally available from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).

All awards for home postgraduate students include:

  • tuition fees
  • maintenance grants
  • contributions towards travel, field work, academic materials and other expenses

You should not apply directly to Research Councils UK but apply through the school of Mathematical Sciences indicating on your application form that you wish to be considered for such support as the grant is held within the school.

Career Development Loans

It might also be worth looking to see if you are eligible for a Career Development Loan (CDL).

International Students
