Postgraduate taught degrees - financial support

Securing financial support for postgraduate study can be challenging but the reputation of Russell Group universities places students in a strong position.  Students finance their studies in a variety of ways, sometimes combining support from different sources to build their own funding package. The principal funding options are:

• Scholarships/awards from external organisations, including the UK Research Councils and industry
• Scholarships funded by individual universities
• Bank loans and career development loans
• Private funding
Information about career and professional development loans can be found at

Further information is also available from individual Russell Group universities, who will be able to advise you on the options most likely to be available to you, given your chosen study path.
