Funding a postgraduate course can be a big financial commitment. There is no statutory funding available for postgraduate courses (other than PGCE courses) and most postgraduate taught students are self funded. There are several ways that students can fund their studies either through work, savings, a Professional & Career Development Loan or educational trust & charity funding. The information given in these pages is designed to assist you in finding financial help that may be available to you.
The tuition fees for postgraduate students varies, depending on your course and whether you are a UK, EU or International Student.
