Money matters

As a postgraduate student you will need to pay annual tuition fees to the University for your programme of study. You may be able to apply for funding to help you cover your costs.

When planning your finances, you will also need to consider other expenses such as living costs, accommodation fees and study materials. Visit the University’s Postgraduate fees and funding page for more information about living costs.

Funding

Finding funding for postgraduate study in the UK is more difficult than for undergraduate study, as it is not customary for the government to provide assistance in the form of loans. International students should investigate funding opportunities in their home country. A list of suggested funding bodies is available on our website
