Fees and funding

Covering the costs of your professional development may now be easier than you think. There are several ways you can fund postgraduate and professional courses here at Bucks.

Employer/NHS sponsorship

Your employer may be happy to sponsor studies that are relevant to your role, or to the sector you work in. Many students have found financial support for their postgraduate studies this way.

Professional and career development loans

A professional and career development loan is a commercial bank loan available to EU and UK students to help cover the costs of work-related learning. To find out more, visit the funding for postgraduate study section at gov.uk or contact the National Careers Service on 0800 100 900.

For more about financial assistance to support your learning, visit our postgraduate funding pages.

Student finance

If you’re studying one of our professional courses at undergraduate level, and haven’t already had a loan from Student Finance England, you may be eligible for a tuition fee loan to cover your course fees. To find out more, see our fees and funding page.

Postgraduate loan scheme

Since September 2016, the new postgraduate loan from the UK government allows eligible students to apply for up to £10,000 to help cover the cost of studying. You can find out more on our postgraduate funding page.

Those taking PGCert/PGDip qualifications are not currently eligible for this loan. You must meet several residency and other criteria before applying.
