Loans and Bursaries
Postgraduate students are not able to access the government funding system of loans and grants. But don’t let this put you off, there are plenty of other options available to help you undertake study and achieve further success in your career.
Career Development Loan
The Career Development Loan is a government-approved loan scheme where two banks, Barclays and the Co-operative, offer loans for fees and course costs. While you study on your course the interest on the loan is paid by the government, however on completion of your studies you will be begin to pay back at an interest rate that is set at your time of application. There is an option to take a payment holiday, but you need to check the exact terms and conditions of the loans on offer with the two approved banks.
For further details of the Career Development Loan system visit here.
There are also charitable organisations that offer financial help to postgraduate students who fit certain criteria. One such organisation is the Leverhulme Charitable Trust, which provides funding for research projects, fellowships, studentships, bursaries and prizes across all the academic disciplines. For further information visit the Leverhulme website.
