UK Postgraduate Fees and Finance

If you are looking for information on fees for International students, please visit our International Fees and Scholarships page.

Postgraduate fees typically increase each year, therefore if you are studying over more than one academic year, your tuition fee in subsequent years is likely to increase. Individual fees for each course can be found on the respective course pages.

 

A postgraduate master's loan is available of up to £12,167 (2023/2024) to help with the tuition fees and/or living costs for master's study. This is for the course, rather than per year. You can apply for the full amount regardless of the actual tuition fee that you will be paying. The loan will be paid directly to you in three instalments in each year of study. Payments will be made in three termly instalments over the duration of the course.

How to Apply

if you have previously received funding for an undergraduate degree you should log into the same account. You can apply for the loan up to nine months after the start of the course.

Repayment 

The master’s loan is repaid at the same time, and same method as undergraduate loans. The earning threshold for master’s loan is £21,000 per year, you will repay 6% of earnings above this. 

To note: 

  • Student’s must be completing a standalone master’s course that consists of at least 180 credits to be eligible.
  • Recognition of prior learning that results in less than 180 credits studied on the course will deem a student ineligible for the loan.
  • Funding is available for full-time and part-time students. However, a part-time course must not be more than twice the full-time equivalent. Courses may have an option of longer for part-time routes, please consider the impact on funding this may have.  
  • Payments will be made once the course has started, please consider this when beginning a course. 
  • Where a postgraduate master’s loan has been received previously, a student will be ineligible for another. There may be grounds for reconsideration under a compelling personal reason.
