Postgraduate Funding Options
We have a collection of postgraduate funding options available
With a variety of funding options available to help with fees and living expenses, finding the funding for postgraduate study may not be as hard as you think.
For postgraduate students wanting to study at the University of Chichester, we have the following funding options:
A postgraduate loan is:
- a contribution towards the costs of study, that is, it will be at the student’s discretion to use the loan towards fees, maintenance costs or other costs
- non-means tested
- paid directly to the student into a UK bank account.
The loan amount changes annually and is subject to change by the government.
Postgraduate loans are available from the government to help fund a master’s degree. The loan available in 2020/21 was up to £11,222 which could be used to pay course fees and living costs.
It is not based on your or your family’s income and it’s paid directly to you. You can also get extra support if you have a disability. Whether you qualify depends on your course, age and nationality or residency status.
Postgraduate Doctoral Loans
A Postgraduate Doctoral Loan can help with course fees and living costs while you study a postgraduate doctoral course, such as a PhD.
If you’re starting a doctoral degree on or after 1 August 2020, you could get a postgraduate doctoral loan of up to £26,445 to help with course fees and living costs. It is not based on your or your family’s income and it’s paid directly to you. You can also get extra support if you have a disability.
Subject Specific Funding
Depending on your area of study, there are other funding options available to help support your postgraduate education. These options are listed on our dedicated Subject Specific funding page.
