I am a Post Graduate student. What funding is available to help with my tuition fees and living costs?

Both Student Finance England and Student Finance Wales are now offering Postgraduate Funding.

Welsh, English domiciled students can take out funding to help towards the cost of their tuition fees or living costs. This loan is partially means tested and will be paid to the student in equal instalments dependent on the length of their course. For up to date information, please see the Postgraduate webpage: http://www.swansea.ac.uk/postgraduate/fees-and-funding/pg-loans/

Both taught and research courses are eligible however, students who already hold a Masters or higher qualification are not eligible for the loan.

If you are EU domiciled / EEA or Swiss migrant worker / child of a Swiss national or Turkish migrant worker, you may be eligible for the English or Welsh Postgraduate Funding scheme, depending on where you study. If you would like to study at Swansea University, you will need to apply for the Welsh Postgraduate Loan.

Swansea University provides scholarships and bursaries and these are promoted on the website at: www.swansea.ac.uk/postgraduate/fees-and-funding. Please be aware that these are not provided by Money@CampusLife so we are unable to supply further information on these. Students can also speak to their department to establish whether they are aware of funds that may be available them.

If you are looking to undertake a PhD, Student Finance England and Student Finance Wales have introduced the Doctoral Loan. Students can apply for a loan for the duration of their course. For more information, please visit:
