There are a range of funding opportunities for postgraduate students which include sponsorship, bursaries, scholarships and loans and if you have recently graduated from Bucks you may be eligible for a fee discount, outlined below.

For payment information please take a look here. If you are an international student, your instalment schedule may be different. Please contact us for more details.

From September 2016, the new postgraduate loan from the government will be in place. This means eligible students will be able to apply for a loan of up to £10,000 to help cover the cost of studying. You can find out more information by looking at our postgraduate loan page.

Employer/other sponsorship

Your employer may be happy to sponsor your studies if they relate to your role or industry.

If you are are a prospective research student, it's worth contacting any companies, charities or professional societies to whom your research may be relevant.

Many students have found financial support for their degrees through this route and this backing can also act as a clear driver and inspiration throughout your course.
