Student finance

It is important that you are able to finance your undergraduate or postgraduate studies, so we aim to provide you with comprehensive information to ensure you make the right decisions and find out about any available funding.

Undergraduate students starting in 2014

For home and EU students your main source of funding will be government loans, as well as University bursaries and scholarships.

While international students may be eligible for some scholarships, as well as additional funding from charities and trusts, it is imperative that you do not travel to the UK or begin your studies without ensuring you have enough money to cover all fees and living expenses. It is virtually impossible to make arrangements for financial support once you have left your home country, while the immigration authorities are unlikely to allow you UK entry unless you have evidence that you can cover the costs of your study.

Undergraduate students starting in or before 2013

Postgraduate students

As a postgraduate, you need to think carefully about how you will fund your studies. The following pages provide information on the tuition fees for your chosen course or research degree, plus supporting information about the scholarships and other funding streams that may be relevant.

Funding for this level of study is highly competitive, so it is important that you fully research the options available to you. It is important that you do not begin postgraduate study without ensuring you have enough money to cover all your academic fees and living expenses.

The links on these pages will help you and you can also contact any of our departments or our graduate admissions team for advice. You should also look at the National Postgraduate Committee's funding guide for further guidance.
