NEW: visit our Study UK search engine to find your scholarship 

Find sources of funding for school, undergraduate, and postgraduate study and for undertaking research in the UK, and access knowledge about other funding opportunities in the UK. Whichever scholarship, grant or award is best for you, we can help you to find it.

For many years now, British schools and universities have been attracting hundreds of thousands of EU and international students. Whilst many students are able to provide for themselves, others may be in need of some financial help.

Since the departure of the UK from the European Union, it is up to each university to award scholarships to European students. Please visit their websites to find out more, or check this non-exhaustive list of UK universities which offer scholarships or discounts to EU students. 

The Welsh government has also set up a funding scheme for students in order to compensate for the UK exit of the Erasmus+ programme with its Taith  programme.

Tips can be found on our Study UK website for making your money go further whilst studying, including information on student discounts and cost of living.

Funding for undergraduate studies

Tuition fees can vary depending on where and what you will study, from £10,000, up to £30,000. 

The UCAS website has the latest information on tuition fees at undergraduate level. 

You can find more information for scholarships for all types of studies, including undergraduate studies on the Study UK website.  

Funding for postgraduate study and research

The minimum cost is £5,000 per year, although some Masters degrees cost significantly more than this (up to £60,000 for MBAs). 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.

UK Research and Innovation

UKRI promotes and supports postgraduate study and research in UK universities across all academic fields. You can check whether they offer funding programmes that apply to you.

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.
