Postgraduate taught

Funding opportunities for postgraduate taught courses are very limited. There is currently one studentship available:

MSc In Digital Health

Students wishing to study for a taught Masters degree need to secure the majority of their funding before beginning their studies.  Most students studying taught Masters courses opt to take out a bank loan and/or use savings. Self-funding students can also apply to the Access to Learning Fund for financial assistance and application forms are available from the Fees and funding pages. 

Postgraduate study loan

The UK government is offering a Postgraduate Master's Loan to UK and EU nationals (conditions apply).
