Postgraduate Students

Postgraduate students do not normally receive the same statutory financial support as undergraduate students. Their employer will fund some and others will support themselves; however, there are some exceptions. These include:

Please see our pages on Funding your Postgraduate Study for more information. 

Financial preparation

Fees for postgraduate programmes are set annually and vary for different programmes. There is limited help available (except for PGCESocial Work and NHS programmes) and it is advised that you should be fully financially prepared when you start your programme as it is not possible for the University to provide assistance for students who arrive with inadequate financial support. Your offer letter will confirm your fee liability and you should be aware of possible fee discounts through our PG Scholarship and Alumni discount. 

The Welfare, Immigration and Funding Team are here to aid your preparation to join a postgraduate programme and these pages aim to support you in this process. 

There is no postgraduate equivalent of the undergraduate Student Loans/Grants system and any non-repayable postgraduate financial support is usually awarded on a competitive basis. Planning your finances therefore needs to be a key part of your preparation for your postgraduate study.  

The UK national regions have their own responsibility for higher education student funding and each has made funding for certain postgraduate study available to students normally resident in that region of the UK.
