You could be entitled for a loan from Student Finance of up to £11,836 for taught and research master's courses. This is a non means-tested loan to help cover your fees, other course costs and living costs.
We offer a range of scholarships and awards to recognise your academic achievement and potential. Unlike a loan, you don't have to pay them back.
We offer a reduction of fees for some students, including the children of Gurkhas.

Your employer can contribute towards the cost of your postgraduate study as part of their staff development programme. If this is the case, please ask your employer to supply a letter (on formal letter-headed paper) detailing their contribution towards your fees.
You will then need to complete our Online Query form, attach the letter and add ‘Sponsorship Information’ in the Subject field.
You can borrow a doctoral loan of up to £28,673 from Student Finance England for 2023-24 study. All of the money is paid directly to your bank account. You can use it for PhD fees, research expenses, maintenance or other costs. Doctoral loans aren't based on household income or means tested, so the amount you can borrow isn't affected by your income or savings. This amount you decide to borrow will then be spread evenly across your PhD, in three instalments per academic year.
If you wish to leave a course before completing it, please notify Unihelp of your intentions as soon as possible. How much of the annual tuition fees you will have to continue to pay is determined by where you are in the academic year when you withdraw.
