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.
Some other funding opportunities are also below.
