Funding and scholarships


Departmental prizes and scholarships

There are some additional scholarships available to students studying certain courses and many of our departments run industry sponsored competitions with prize money for exceptional students.


The Faculty of Engineering has a small number of scholarship opportunities for both postgraduate research and postgraduate taught courses.

Postgraduate research

Individual, subject specific posts and department programme-specific funding positions come up throughout the year; check here regularly for opportunities.

Postgraduate taught

Funding opportunities for postgraduate taught courses are very limited.

Students wishing to study for a taught Masters degree need to secure the majority of their funding before beginning their studies.  Most students studying taught Masters courses opt to take out a bank loan and/or use savings.  Self-funding students can also apply to the Access to Learning Fund for financial assistance and application forms are available from the Fees and funding pages.

Postgraduate study loan

The UK government is offering a Postgraduate Master's Loan to UK and EU nationals (conditions apply).
