Funding for postgraduate study and research
The minimum cost is £11, 000 per year, although some Masters degrees cost significantly more than this (up to £50,000). If you need to apply for extra funding there are several organisations that may be able to help with tuition fee costs and/or living expenses. It is important to apply early, as deadlines for applications can be up to a year before your course or research begins.

A useful summary of different funding sources can also be found on the Prospects website, which specialises in information concerning postgraduate study and career opportunities.
