Postgraduate loans are available for full-time and part-time master’s courses. Whether you qualify depends on:
- Your course
- Your age
- Your nationality or residency status
- Previous study
The full eligibility criteria can be found at www.gov.uk/masters-loan/eligibility
Postgraduate loans are not assessed on personal or family income.
You can apply at www.gov.uk/student-finance-register-login.
For students from Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland please visit www.gov.uk/masters-loan for information about the postgraduate funding available to you.
Postgraduates are encouraged to explore all forms of additional funding to maximise the amount available to support the payment of tuition fees and living costs.
Tuition fees must be either paid in full at the start of each academic year or in three equal instalments.
You will be asked during stage one of enrolment how you intend to pay your tuition fee. If you will be receiving a postgraduate loan from Student Finance England or Student Finance Wales, you will be classed as self-funding as your postgraduate loan will be paid directly to you and not the University. You will be instructed during enrolment how to make payment. This can either be done in full at the start of the academic year or in three equal instalments via a recurring card payment. For further information related to payments contact the Fees, Scholarships and Bursaries Team at [email protected].
It is your responsibility to make payment on time and ensure that sufficient funds are available in your account to cover the first and any subsequent card payments.
If you fail to meet the deadline the University will refer any outstanding debt for external collection and may review your registration.
If you are sponsored by an employer for part of, or the full tuition fee, you must forward the following information to [email protected] during enrolment:
- A letter from your sponsor to confirm that they agree to sponsor you
- The letter must be on official headed paper and state the name and address where the invoice needs to be sent. It should also confirm your name, student number, academic year and the amount of fees they are paying
- A company purchase order number if applicable.
Please note that in accordance with our published Tuition Fee Regulations you will remain personally responsible for payment of tuition fees, even if there is an arrangement for payment to be made on your behalf. If your sponsor fails to pay within 30 days of invoicing we will commence credit control procedures against you, not your employer.
