Explore your funding options

Please note that applying for funding is a separate process from applying for admission. An offer of a course place does not constitute an offer of financial support; this is your responsibility. The information in this section is intended to highlight the main sources of funding – it is not comprehensive and there may be other sources (both in the UK and abroad).

Postgraduate Loan Scheme

The UK Government has recently announced that most English and EU students will be able to access up to £10,000 as a loan towards postgraduate study. Administered by the Student Loan Company the repayments will be linked to earnings and no repayments will be expected whilst a student is in full-time study. Certain residency restrictions apply and more information can be found below under External Funding applications are now open.
