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).

This loan scheme is valued up to £10,280 per programme in total (not per year), and repayments are made post-study as a percentage of income. Administered by the Student Loan Company, residency restrictions apply and more information can be found below under External Funding applications are now open.
