Postgraduate funding and scholarships

With multiple funding support options available, postgraduate study is more accessible than ever before. Whether you’re considering studying at UWE Bristol for the first time, or if you know us well as a graduate or final year undergraduate student, you can now take the next step to making your professional ambitions a reality.

If you’re considering postgraduate study and you’ve not studied at UWE Bristol previously, you may be eligible for a postgraduate loan.

New postgraduate Masters loans for 2017/18 academic year

Postgraduate Loans (PGLs) are available from Student Finance England to study a Masters course. Masters students under 60 can access a loan of up to £10,280 as a contribution towards the cost of their study. This is part of the government’s long-term commitment to enhance support for postgraduate study.
