There are a number of postgraduate funding options that students can explore and we recommend that students find out what funding is available to them and budget for postgraduate study well in advance of the start of their course.
Student Finance England does not provide support for postgraduate courses, except through Disabled Students' Allowances and for Teacher Training courses.
