Information on fees and funding for postgraduates.

Costs of postgraduate study

Annual costs include a tuition fee, additional programme costs and living expenses. The tuition fee differs between Home/EU and Overseas students, so you should carefully check your fee status. Additional programme costs (sometimes called bench fees or research costs) cover facilities such as basic consumables, equipment purchase, hire and maintenance, computing hardware and software. Tuition fees and additional programme costs are payable for each year of active study, typically one year for MSc, two years for MPhil and three years for PhD.

Apply for entry onto a postgraduate programme

For some funding streams, you can indicate directly on your application that you wish to be considered for an award. However, for most funding schemes, a separate application will be necessary. You need to consult the details of the opportunities for which you are eligible, and the relevant deadlines.
